PORTLAND, Oregon – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of whoever is responsible for killing a federally-protected gray wolf in Central Oregon. The carcass was found on April 23 about 20 miles northwest of Klamath Falls on the Fremont-Winema National Forest.
The remains were sent to the USFWS Forensics Lab in Ashland for a necropsy. It was determined that the male gray wolf was OR-33, and that it died because of gunshot wounds. The lab could not determine the estimated date of the shooting.
