Oakridge Man Pleads Guilty To Illegally Killing Endangered Gray Wolf

National Park Service

An Oakridge man pleaded guilty today to illegally killing an endangered gray wolf.

Colton Tony Dick killed the animal with a rifle and scope in the Fremont-Winema National Forest. The U.S. Attorney’s office says he did not have legal justification as it was walking away from him when he shot.

Dick has agreed to submit to one-year of supervised release, pay restitution of $2,500 to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, not hunt any wildlife for one year, and perform 100 hours of community service.
