OSP Seeking Information On Wolf Shot And Killed In Baker County
Investigators in Oregon are asking for your help trying to find the person or persons responsible for the shooting and killing of a wolf in the Pine Creek Wildlife Management Unit in Baker County. On Friday, August 5th, Oregon State Police Fish & Wildlife troopers received information from the state Department of Fish and Wildlife that a collared wolf, OR112, may be dead at a location just off of Forest Service RD 66, between Twin Lakes and Fish Lake, roughly seven miles north of Halfway. Personnel responded to the area and located a deceased wolf over the embankment of 66 RD.
Investigators said the wolf, known as OR112, was a two year old gray-collared female that was part of the Keating Pack, and had been shot by a firearm. Troopers believe the wolf was shot and killed on the morning of August 4th.
The Oregon Wildlife Coalition and conservation partners are offering to pay an $11,500 reward that leads OSP F&W Troopers to an arrest and/or citation stemming from this incident. Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact OSP through the Turn in Poachers [TIP] hotline at (800) 452-7888 or *OSP (*677), or email TIP@osp.oregon.gov Reference case number SP22201971.
