Cattle Depredation In McKay Caynon Area Attributed To Ukiah Pack

Department of Fish and Wildlife

Umatilla County – On November 11, 2022, the carcass of an approximately 1500 lb, yearling bull was found in a 1100-acre private land pasture. It was estimated that the bull died less than 24 hours before the investigation.

There were more than 60 pre-mortem bite scrapes measuring up to 4.5 inches long and ¼ inch wide at the right front elbow, both hindquarters above the hock, and near the anus. Pre-mortem hemorrhage was up to two inches deep. The severity, size, and locations of these wounds are consistent with cattle attacked by wolves. This depredation is attributed to wolves of the Ukiah Pack.
