The Deseret News reports that numerous sightings of what could be a wolf pack have brought wildlife experts to Diamond Fork Canyon.
Kim Hersey of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources says biologists are using an electronic device to send out high-pitched wolf calls and listening for wolves to howl back.
She says she did receive a response that was "consistent with a wolf howl," but was unable to confirm it came from a wolf.
If confirmed, it would be the first wolf pack in Utah since the animal was exterminated nearly a century ago.
Biologists also searched the area for wolves in March.
