WENATCHEE, Wash. - A Chelan County deputy was forced to kill a deer due to its injuries after a wolf attack Tuesday morning.

The attack happened in a residential area on the west side of Wenatchee.

A Fish and Wildlife spokesperson says a wildlife biologist examined the deer and found it had a broken leg, possibly from being hit by a car, which made it vulnerable to the wolf attack.
    
Two wolves were photographed by a remote camera in late March just south of Wenatchee, the first evidence of a wolf pack in Chelan County in recent history.
