BRIEFLY: Wolf pack blamed for death of sheep

The Umatilla River wolf pack has been blamed for the death of two sheep in the Weston Mountain area.

An investigation report released Monday said a sheep herder found two injured sheep early Thursday afternoon. 

Soon after the discovery a male lamb died from its injuries and a ewe was euthanized as a result of its injuries. 

Later that day, another male lamb was discovered injured in the same area and is currently being cared for by the livestock owner. 

The following day the carcass of a fourth sheep was discovered 25 yards up the canyon from where the ewe was originally found by the herder. It had been partially consumed similar to the previous two sheep and is assumed to have died as a result of the same incident. 

The report said the sheep herder found tracks near where the first two dead sheep were found, and an investigation conducted by an Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist revealed bite wounds consistent with previous wolf attacks.

The sheep were killed in an area within the Umatilla River pack home range. Currently there are no radio collars on any of these wolves. 

The report said Umatilla River pack wolves have periodically depredated other sheep in the larger general area for three years.

In June 2014, several dead sheep were killed by the pack in the Wildhorse Road area. The same sheep and pen had confirmed wolf depredation by the Umatilla River pack in 2012.
