A calf found dead on private land in Southern Oregon’s Jackson County was killed by a wolf, according to the state Department of Fish and Wildlife.
The three-day-old calf was found by a ranch employee Feb. 25. ODFW investigated that day and found wolf tracks in the snow around the carcass. The entrails and internal organs had been eaten. Bite marks on the carcass were wider and deeper than coyote bites, according to an ODFW report.
Data from a GPS radio collar showed a wolf designated OR-25 was at the kill site at 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. on Feb. 25. OR-25 is a male that dispersed from the Imnaha Pack in northeast Oregon in March 2015 and traveled through the Columbia Basin, southern Blue Mountains and the northern and central Cascades.
The attack happened in the Red Blanket Creek area.
