2 wolves were found dead in the Sled Springs location of Wallowa County the week of Aug. 24.
Among the wolves found dead was collared (OR21, woman). After the collar released a mortality signal, an Oregon State Police Fish and Wildlife Cannon fodder from the Enterprise workplace, along with Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife personnel, reacted to the location and found 2 deceased wolves within 50 yards of each other. Cause of death is still under investigation.
The collared wolf and a male she had been observed with were understood as the Sled Springs pair and were recently established in the location. ODFW developed the Sled Springs Pair Area of Understood Wolf Activity in January. Visithttp:// dfw.state.or.us/
