Two more kills pinned on Rogue Pack

This remote camera photo taken May 3, 2014, and provided by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, shows the wolf OR-7 on the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest in southwest Oregon.

Attacks on two more cows in the Fort Klamath area have been attributed to the Rogue wolf pack, bringing the total to seven this month.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Thursday reported two livestock kills, one Wednesday, July 27, and another Tuesday, July 26.

According to the report issued about the July 27 incident, that morning a livestock producer found an injured 700-pound yearling steer in a 200-acre private pasture. The steer had more than 50 bites on its hindquarters.

A day earlier, a livestock producer found a dead 750-pound yearling steer in a 200-acre private pasture. It is believed the steer died about 72 hours before the investigation.

The incidents were the sixth and seventh this month in the Fort Klamath area of Klamath County. The Rogue Pack is known to move in the Cascades region between Fort Klamath and the Prospect area of Jackson County.
