Southern Oregon Wolf Killed By Car

(Roseburg, OR) -- A wolf in southern Oregon was hit and killed by a car. It happened near the entrance to Lemolo Lake in the Umpqua National Forest. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife says the wolf had lost its fear of humans because people were feeding it. The wolf, known as OR-143, would lie down near vehicles and wouldn't move if it heard human voices or honking horns. Another collared wolf also appeared to be losing its fear of people. The wolf was part of the Indigo pack which lives in Douglas County.
