SUMMER LAKE, Ore. (AP) – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has confirmed a wolf attack in Lake County last month.

The Herald and News reports (https://is.gd/o4JDrH ) that it is believed a tracked female grey wolf perpetrated the Sept. 28 attack that injured a calf grazing as a part of a herd.

No other incidents of wolf depredation have been reported in the area recently.

Wildlife officials are composing a conflict deterrence plan to help stop future depredation by the Silver Lake wolf pack. The plan will outline non-lethal, preventative measures that livestock producers can take to avoid conflicts with wolves.
