Rail Canyon Sept. 14 depredation investigations
Two dead calves were found on rangeland southeast of Joseph Friday afternoon. A report of the findings is expected by Monday afternoon.
Friday, a dead calf was found in Rail Canyon not far from where one was declared a probable wolf kill on Sept. 11. Another calf was found dead on the Johnson ranch a few miles away.
No recent global positioning system collar information from the Imnaha pack's alpha male, OR-7, coincides with these kills.
A USDA Wildlife Service's report confirmed both calves were killed by wolves. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will conclude its report by tomorrow.
