The Rogue Pack of gray wolves apparently picked up in August where it left off in July — by attacking cattle.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife said that Aug. 1 a livestock producer in the Fort Klamath area of Klamath County found an injured, 700-pound, 11-month-old heifer in a 375-acre pasture that had been attacked and severely injured.

The animal was euthanized by the producer because of the severity of its injuries, which wildlife officials estimated occurred within 24 hours of the investigation.

A report issued Aug. 3 by Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife attributed the attack to the Rogue Pack.

In July, 10 cattle deaths in the Fort Klamath area were attributed to the Rogue Pack.
