OR: Video of Wolf Shooting Self Defense Interview, October, 2017

Link to video

On 27 October, 2017, an Oregon elk hunter shot and killed a wolf charging directly at him. He fired one shot from a 30-06, using  Hornaday ammunition.

The wolf was found to be an 83 pound female. Two other wolves were with the female, initially.

In the interview, the hunter indicates there likely were more wolves that he did not see.

This was the first self-defense shooting of a wolf in Oregon since they were re-introduced in the late 1990's.
