Fish and wildlife officials said another federally protected gray wolf was found dead in Klamath County, the third known illegal killing since October 2016.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Monday that OR-25, a 4˝-year-old male, was found dead Oct. 29 near Fort Klamath in the Sun Pass State Forest.

A wolf carcass was discovered April 23 in the Fremont-Winema National Forest but federal officials only confirmed the animal was OR-33 in early October.

On Oct. 6, 2016, a female wolf, OR-28, was found dead in the same forest near Summer Lake. All three animals were wearing tracking collars at the time of their deaths.

OR-33, a male, had been shot. The cause of death was not released for the other two wolves, but a federal official said they did not die of natural causes.

I may get trashed for this but i do hope they are caught. I don't agree with wolf reintroduction and i don't agree with hunters making their own decisions on what is poaching and what isn't.  To ethical sportsmen it is clear. If it is illegal to shoot, don't shoot.

I can tell from this banter that you're both pretty broken up over the needless murder of these innocent woodland creatures.

I wouldn't do it. I wouldn't condone it. It's very sad. I'll have to figure out how to move forward in spite of this tragedy.

...I think I'm OK now.  :tup:

I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to take a knee for the brutality these wolves are having to deal with. :chuckle:

I think the reward money should go to the guy killing the wolves, just my opinion.

It's disgusting that a reward for a wolf killing is more than information about a human being killed....................


There is really something wrong with our corrupt and lying government.

So if we know there is an OR33 does that mean we should be able to get a general location for all the wolves the state has collared, and or tagged?

I didn't say it was a hunter. My point is, when the general public hears about poaching incidents they think bad hunters.

And to top it off in most states (including WA) when you look at the actual criminal charges someone is charged with for a poaching incident it isn't a "poaching" charge but rather "unlawful hunting" or along those lines.

That may be true, but the general public also thinks that guns are the cause of mass shootings, so............   :dunno:

Then general public don’t have a clue about the impact that wolves play in our hunting future.  The anti’s opinion will never change, the state’s support of the wolf won’t change until it’s too late.  I think guys who are willing to put these wolves down, care more about our hunting and wildlife than most!  I typed a bunch more, but figured I better erase it!  Flame on!

These are the same people who took away hound hunting and bear baiting. You may not like the "general public" but peoples interactions with wildlife whether it be legal hunting or "poaching" does impact hunters as a whole. Simply saying F them will only cause more issues for hunters.
