Second Oregon wolf shot, killed by Idaho hunter

BOISE, Idaho — A second GPS-collared wolf from Oregon has been killed by a hunter in Idaho.

Idaho Fish and Game spokesman Mike Demick confirmed Thursday the 2-year-old female known as OR-17 was shot March 2, about a week after leaving Oregon.

He says the wolf was shot legally by a coyote hunter about 70 miles south of Lewiston.

The wolf was a member of the Imnaha pack, the first to breed in Oregon from wolves that migrated from Idaho after their reintroduction in the 1990s. Another from the pack was shot in Idaho in 2012.

Rob Klavins of Oregon Wild says the killing underscores how states differ in their approach to wolves. Another migrating wolf, OR-7, has become an international celebrity after trekking more than 1,000 miles across Oregon and Northern California.
