ODFW Crews Called To Another Wallowa County Depredation
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife remains busy with wolf depredations in the NE corner of the state. Midday on Wednesday, a ranch manger in Wallowa County's Noregarard area found a dead seven-month-old calf in a 6,000 acre private land forested pasture. ODFW said the carcass was in tact and a majority of the 400-pound calf's tissue had been consumed. Investigators said the location, size and number of tooth scrapes and severity of tamas is similar to other confirmed wolf attacks on calves.
This depredation was attributed to the Wildcat Pack. This is the second confirmed depredation in Wallowa County in less than a week.
