Wolf OR-28’s killer avoids jail

A 22-year-old Oakridge man has escaped jail time after pleading guilty Monday in Medford for fatally shooting collared gray wolf OR-28 in 2016 near Summer Lake in violation of the federal Endangered Species Act. But defendant Tony Dick never admitted to killing the wolf with a single rifle shot as the wolf was walking away from him Oct. 5, 2016, on the Fremont-Winema National Forest, and he could get his conviction wiped clean under a plea agreement accepted Monday in U. S.
