BUTTE FALLS, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say a wolf from the Rogue Pack is believed to be responsible for killing a calf last week on a ranch in southwestern Oregon.
The Mail Tribune reports a rancher on Thursday found a 250-pound (113-kilogram) calf dead on his property near Medco Pond.
According to an investigation by Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists, the dead calf was labeled as a wolf kill after finding tracks and bites on the carcass matching a wolf.
Authorities were able to trace the kill to OR-54, a young female wolf in the Rogue Pack. A tracking collar on the wolf placed it less than a mile from the scene of the kill.
