Michelle Dennehy of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife tells the Herald and News that a cattle producer reported the killing of a calf on private pastureland.
Wolves known to frequent the area include the Rogue Pack, comprised of two adults and four pups recorded as of the end of last year, and OR-25, a 4-year-old lone male.
This is the second recent attack in south-central Oregon. The first took place two or three weeks ago near Timber Fall Butte in Lake County. In that case, a female member of the Silver Lake Wolves pack is believed to have gone after a calf in a herd grazing on federal land. The calf has so far survived its injuries.
