PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) – Oregon wildlife officials have confirmed a third livestock attack by the Snake River wolf pack in northeastern Oregon. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife says that a livestock owner found an adult cow on Nov. 20 with numerous bite wounds on both hind legs. GPS collar data show that the wolves of the Snake River pack were in the area.

GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) – A 29-year-old Gresham man was stabbed when he tried to intervene in a fight between a man and a woman on a street. KGW-TV reports Kit Haberman has been released from a hospital after being stabbed in the stomach. Police say the fight was between a husband and wife and the husband has been charged with stabbing Haberman.

GLENDALE, Ore. (AP) – Southern Oregon plywood mills are waiting for improvements to be made to four railroad tunnels that will allow them to ship more lumber by rail. Mill operators tell the Grants Pass Daily Courier that the old tunnels are too small for modern rail cars. A $5.7 million project to be finished next year will add notches to the tunnels to allow high-capacity cars to reach mills in Glendale, Rogue River and the Medford area.

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) – Dungeness crab from the Oregon Coast probably won’t make it to dinner tables until late December because tests have yet to show the crabs are at the correct size for harvesting. The Medford Mail Tribune reports the Oregon crab season has been delayed until Dec. 15. November tests showed that crabs were just shy of the threshold.
