BAKER CITY, Ore. (AP) — A wolf from the Imnaha pack killed a cow recently in eastern Baker County, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife confirms.
The cow belonged to the Pine Valley Ranch, based at Halfway, which has a permit to graze as many as 500 cows on Forest Service land in the Sugarloaf Reservoir area of northeast Oregon.
Manager Merlin Flake says the remains of the cow were found Friday by Forest Service employees.
The Baker City Herald reports it's the first confirmed wolf depredation of livestock in Baker County since 2009.
