Investigators says the Clark Creek Pack is responsible for a depredation that occurred in Wallowa County last week. Crews were called to a 15,000-acres forested private-land allotment in the Deer Creek area where a hunter found a dead, eight month old calf. ODFW investigators say the nearly 700 pound calf died either Wednesday September 1st or perhaps Thursday September 2nd. The carcass was in tact with roughly 50% of the tissue consumed.

The attack was similar to other confirmed wolf attacks on calves. A GPS location from a radio-collared Clark Creek wolf was in the area at the time of the death of the calf.

ODFW crews have been called to over 20 depredation across eastern Oregon this summer.
