Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife cameras have captured images of a pair of wolves in the Entiat Mountains of Chelan County.

Biologists were able to determine that the wolves were part of a newly formed pack that is probably related to the nearby Teanaway pack near Cle Elum. That brings the number of confirmed packs in the state to 10, with two more suspected packs.

It also represents the second confirmed pack to form in a more central location. Most inhabit the north and northeast part of the state.

The new pack has been named the Wenatchee pack and so far it has only two confirmed members.
