Oregon Wolf Dies After Being Radio-Collared

Oregon Fish and Game Photo

A yearling gray wolf has died within a week after being collared by by state biologists. This photo is shows an Oregon biologist radio-collaring a wolf captured in a similar operation.
Oregon wolves are collared so they can be tracked and killed if they get in trouble by killing or chasing domestic livestock.

Wolves and other captured animals often die from the stress and over exertion caused by being trapped and captured. The fancy name for this is called "Capture Myopathy". The muscles break down and flood the kidneys with damaged muscle protein causing them to fail.

A Collared Wolf Is A Dead Wolf!
