ENTERPRISE, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon wolf known to biologists as OR-16 has been killed by a hunter in Idaho. It’s the second gray wolf equipped with a tracking collar to be shot after leaving Oregon, where they cannot be hunted, or shot for attacking livestock. Oregon wildlife officials say OR-16 was a member of the Walla Walla pack in northeastern Oregon and crossed the Snake River into Idaho last month. He was shot near Lowman, Idaho, on Saturday.

The East Oregonian reported that as of Wednesday, 958 wolves have been killed in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming as part of hunts aimed at reducing wolf numbers. Last year, a wolf known as OR-9 crossed into Idaho and was illegally shot by a hunter who was issued a warning.
