A federal agency and five conservation groups have put together a reward totaling $15,500 for information on the illegal killing of an Oregon wolf in Klamath County.

The wolf, OR-33, died of gunshot wounds in late April, but the case wasn’t confirmed until October following tests on the wolf’s DNA.

It is a violation of the federal Endangered Species Act to kill a gray wolf in the western two-thirds of Oregon, along with a violation of Oregon state game laws. 

The wolf’s carcass was found about 20 miles northwest of Klamath Falls in Fremont-Winema National Forest, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials said.
