Trail Camera Used To Confirm NE Oregon Depredation
On Wednesday, an Oregon Department of Fish and Wildfire employee was checking trail cameras in an 8,000-acre, private pasture in the Kamela area of Umatilla County. The employee observed that the camera had taken photos of wolves harassing a 450 pound calf for several minutes on Tuesday morning, while its mother was present.
The livestock owner was unable to find the calf when he searched later in the week.
According to ODFW, the photographs showed fresh bite scrape injuries on the calf’s left hindquarter above the hock. The depredation has been attributed to the Ukiah Pack.
