SALEM, Ore. (AP) - An investigation by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has determined that a sheep found dead Jan. 30 in northeast Oregon was killed by members of the Imnaha wolf pack.

The Capital Press reports (https://is.gd/5Kn9K0 ) that investigators found multiple wolf tracks in the snow near the carcass in a paddock. The ewe had suffered severe bites. The Wildlife Department says the sheep was partially consumed and still warm when the livestock owner found it.

Readings from a radio tracking collar showed a pack member was in the area on Jan. 29 and Jan. 30.

The department says a cow was attacked by the pack last August, about five miles away.

The Imnaha pack was Oregon’s first.
