From The Oregonian:
Two weeks after a Clackamas man shot and killed a gray wolf west of La Grande, state wolf experts and advocates say it’s important for hunters and hikers to know more about the reclusive canid’s behavior before spending time in the wild.
Brian Scott told law enforcement officers he was acting in self-defense when he fatally shot the protected animal on Oct. 27. No charges were filed in the Union County incident. It’s illegal to kill wolves in Oregon except under certain circumstances, including self-defense.
