State police lack proof that wolf deaths were human-caused

…The lead Oregon State Police investigator said the agency does not have probable cause to believe humans caused the deaths of the Sled Springs wolf pair in August…The environmental group Oregon Wild has called the deaths “suspicious” because wolves have been killed illegally in Oregon previously…The pair had pups that would have been about five months old when the adult wolves died.
