The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said the 6-month-old wolf apparently was shot to death while standing along a dirt road about seven miles southwest of Hannagan Meadow. The wolf was found dead Oct. 13.Who does things like this? Why? And why doesn't someone else bust them, to the tune of $52K in reward money?
Not a great day for wolf news- Ralph Maughan has a post up about the bad year for reproductive success in the Yellowstone wolf populations. At least, though, that's due to natural attrition. Population fluxes are to be expected, right?
Someone send us some good news, OK? We're FREAKING OUT.
