Union County Wolf Pack Blamed For Six Sheep Deaths

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife says a Union County wolf pack recently killed six sheep.  ODFW investigators were called Forest Service land Monday morning, after a sheep herder found two dead adult sheep.  The next morning, four more adult sheep were found.  Investigators say all six were killed on Labor Day Monday.


An investigation of the carcasses discovered bite marks and scrapes associated with wolves.  ODFW adds a radio-collared member of the Ruckel Ridge pack was in the area Monday.  The depredation of all six adult sheep have been attributed to the Ruckel Ridge Pack.
