OR: Rancher Shoots Wolf that Attacked his Cattle

A Wallowa County cattle rancher shot and presumably seriously wounded or killed a wolf June 25 in the act of chasing livestock. It is the first incident of its kind in Wallowa County and the second in Oregon.

The rancher and his wife, who chose to remain anonymous, said they had suffered numerous instances of wolves harassing their cattle. The couple saw a wolf chasing a herd of cows on June 25 on a public land allotment in the Wallowa Mountains.

The rancher called county commissioner Todd Nash, who is chairman of the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association Wolf Committee, for advice. Nash told the rancher he could legally shoot the wolf. The man did and the animal limped away.
