The mama wolf, named “OR-28”, was illegally shot and killed by a hunter. This killing is a major setback to the endangered and vulnerable gray wolf population of Oregon.

The mama wolf had just given birth to her first litter of pups and was still nursing them when she was shot. The pups have new been orphaned. Officials say that killing a breeding female can prove to be very detrimental to the entire pack structure and lead to conflicts in livestock.
