Third Collared Wolf Found Dead In Klamath County


Another collared gray wolf with ties to Jackson County was found dead last week in Klamath County, the third killing of a federally protected and collared wolf there in the past year.

Wolf OR-25, which spent about two months in Jackson County about a year ago and was responsible for killing a cow near Prospect, was found dead Oct. 29 on Sun Pass State Forest lands near Fort Klamath, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The wolf’s GPS collar emitted a mortality signal the day it was found, and it was positively identified, service spokesman Brent Lawrence said this morning.
