In December of 2005, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife ruled that they will NOT assist in the reintroduction of the wolf into Oregon. They state that if wolves come into the state on their own, possibly through Idaho. They will allow the wolves to stay. This could take many many years for something like that to happen. Complaints about high populations of Cougar and Coyote are always being made. The reason for this is because the Wolf is no longer in the state, so naturally other local predators fill the gap that was left. With the reintroduction of wolves into the state, the other local predator populations would then start to balance out.
