MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say gray wolf OR-7’s Rogue Pack has been blamed for killing another cow at a ranch in southwest Oregon, marking the eighth confirmed livestock kill attributed to the pack since late October.
The Mail Tribune reports that the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife says a livestock owner found an injured calf on New Year’s Day on a ranch in the Boundary Butte area where the Rogue Pack has killed before.
The department’s report did not identify the ranch, but rancher Ted Birdseye confirmed Friday it was his in northeastern Jackson County.
Birdseye has lost five cows and a guard dog to the wolf pack over the past 13 months.
