Wolves kill fourth calf in Fort Klamath area
KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) — Wildlife officials say wolves killed a calf in southern Oregon, marking the fourth kill by the Rogue Pack in the Fort Klamath area.
The Herald and News reports state Department of Fish and Wildlife officials confirmed Tuesday that the dead calf found Friday on ranch lands in Wood River Valley was killed by wolves.
Three other dead calves were found over a three-day period last week.
Department wildlife biologist Tom Collum says personnel are taking turns camping in a field near the ranch, and they are using non-lethal methods to deter wolves, including sirens, bonfires, strobe lights and cracker shells.
Officials are also checking remote cameras daily to track movement. They have set up traps to capture wolves, so they can place tracking collars.
