Wolf attack in Eastern Oregon leaves 16 chickens, seven geese missing

Associated Press

FLORA, Ore. – Wildlife officials say a wolf pack killed at least eight chickens and a goose in Eastern Oregon.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife told the Capital Press that a GPS tracking collar on a wolf shows its location about 300 yards from the attack site at about 6 a.m. on Thursday.

The state agency said wolf tracks filled the site near Flora on the northern edge of Wallowa County.

Officials said the wolf with the tracking collar is from the Shamrock Pack.

The flock owners said they had 16 chickens and eight geese on Wednesday evening.

They said they heard wolves howling at 4 a.m., and later discovered 16 chickens and seven geese missing.

State officials identified parts of at least eight chickens and a goose.
