The Oregon State Police are seeking tips about the killing of an animal likely to be a wolf in Union County.
The dead animal was discovered about six miles north of Cove in mid-March and had been dead for about a week when found. Police are not releasing the cause of death, but say it was a result of a criminal act.
Genetic tests to confirm if the animal is a wolf are still being completed. If it is a wolf, the killer may face up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $6,250.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Senior Trooper Kris Davis at 541-963-7175, ext. 4673 or email kris .email@example.com.
