UMATILLA COUNTY, OR - The Oregon State Police is asking for the public's help in finding the person or people responsible for killing a male wolf pup that was found dead, near Lincton Mountain in Umatilla County.

Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife sent an anonymous complaint to police in December, regarding a wolf that had been shot and killed near Milton-Freewater. The dead wolf was picked-up and a genetic analysis of the carcass showed the wolf had been born into the Umatilla River pack.
