Feds offer $5,000 reward for killer of wolf on Fremont-Winema Forest in Oregon.


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of whoever was responsible for killing a federally protected gray wolf in south-central Oregon.

On April 23, 2017, a canid carcass was found about 20 miles northwest of Klamath Falls on the Fremont-Winema National Forest. The carcass was sent to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s Forensics Labs in Ashland for a necropsy, which determined that it was a male gray wolf known as OR-33, and that it died from gunshot wounds. The Service does not have an estimated date of when the wolf was shot.

OR-33 dispersed from the Imnaha Pack in northeastern Oregon in November 2015, and was not known to be part of any pack. The approximately 4-year-old wolf had a collar, but it quit transmitting in August of 2016.

The Mail Tribune reports the wolf had been blamed for a three-day livestock killing spree east of Ashland in June 2016. OR-33 was blamed for killing two goats, one sheep and injuring a third sheep.

It is a violation of the Endangered Species Act to kill a gray wolf, which is listed as endangered in the western two-thirds of Oregon. It is also a violation of Oregon state game laws. The Oregon State Police and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are working together on the investigation.

Anyone with information about this case should call the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at (503) 682-6131, or Oregon State Police Tip Line at (800) 452-7888. Callers may remain anonymous.


Hurricane Harvey is not a movie.  While this hurricane may be over and the media will be moving shortly to cover the approach of Hurricane Irma – life will slowly, if ever, return to pre-Harvey splendor…but the human story has just begun, the Texas spirit has become forged in steel and the eyes of a nation are on Texas.


On September 5, 2017,  Wolfdog Radio presents an interview with Dr. Marc Bekoff.  We will start our show with an exclusive interview of the actual faces of some of the survivors and heroes of Hurricane Harvey.  We will be talking with Jerry Mills for the real story..as he lived the flooding waters, the Tejas Den Uncensored.  We will also be speaking with a member of the Cajun Navy as well Catherine Howell.

Join us on 09/05/2017 at 9:00 PM EST for details about the many options available to assist Jerry and Donna and our interview with Dr. Marc Bekoff.
