The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife says a Wallowa County area wolf pack is responsible for a recent depredation.

On Thursday, May 21st, a producer found an injured, two-month-old, 130-pound calf in a large public land grazing allotment. The calf was transported to a vet clinic for treatment. ODFW said the calf had a large area of missing hide and muscle from the back of the right rear leg. Investigators believe the injuries happened the weekend before.

The depredation occurred within the Chesnimnus Pack AKWA. This is the 9th wolf depredation in Oregon for 2020.
