Gray wolf OR-7’s Rogue Pack has killed another cow at a northeastern Jackson County ranch, marking the seventh confirmed livestock kill attributed to the pack since late October, authorities said.
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife reports that the dead and partially consumed cow was found Sunday on a ranch in the Boundary Butte area where the Rogue Pack has killed before, but a report released late Monday did not identify the ranch.
The Boundary Butte area is in the vicinity of rancher Ted Birdseye, who has lost at least four cows and a guard dog that were confirmed as wolf kills in the Rogue Pack’s home range so far in 2018.
Neither Birdseye nor ODFW Rogue District Wildlife biologist Steve Niemela could be reached for comment late Monday.
