A third Baker County rancher has had cattle attacked by wolves from the Pine Creek pack near Halfway.

Biologists from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) confirmed that wolves attacked a calf belonging to Barry and Shella DelCurto of Halfway early Wednesday.

Barry DelCurto said he found the six-week-old, 150-pound calf Wednesday morning in the North Pine Creek area about 10 miles east of Halfway. He said he moved his cattle on Sunday to an allotment that includes both private and Forest Service land east of the Wallowa Mountain Loop Road and north of Highway 86. The herd consists of about 128 cow-calf pairs and a few cows, DelCurto said.<<<Read More>>>
