Officials confirm attack by Snake River wolf pack in Oregon




PENDLETON, Ore. — Oregon wildlife officials have confirmed a third livestock attack by the Snake River wolf pack in northeastern Oregon.

Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife said in statement last week that a livestock owner found an adult cow on Nov. 20 with numerous bite wounds on both hind legs.

Officials said the injuries on the live animal were 10 to 14 days old, and were similar to those observed on previous wolf attacks. GPS collar data show that the wolves of the Snake River pack were in the area where the cow was being pastured during the time of injury.

Officials say two calves were previously confirmed attacked by Snake River wolves in October and November.
