Three gray wolves found dead in Oregon, $50k reward for information leading to arrest

Three gray wolves were found dead in Oregon in December, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is now offering the highest reward in the state’s history for tips in their killings.

Wildlife officials received “mortality” signals on Dec. 29 from two collared gray wolves in Klamath County, the agency said. Oregon State Police and a wildlife biologist responded to the area east of Bly and found the two animals and a third uncollared wolf, all dead.

Officials would not say how they died.

The U.S. Wildlife Service is offering $50,000 for information leading to an arrest, conviction or civil-penalty assessment in the killings. It’s the highest reward offered by the agency for information on the deaths of federally listed, endangered wolves in Oregon, spokesperson Megan Nagel said.
