Reward Upped To $10,000 For White Wolf Killer
Yellowstone National Park officials are looking to the public for help in solving the killing one of three popular white wolves in the park, that had to be euthanized after it was discovered suffering from a gunshot wound on April 11.
While wolves generally have a life expectancy of six years, this one lasted 12. She was the alpha leader of “The Canyon Pack” near the northern border of the park.
“She was one of the most recognizable wolves and sought after by visitors to view and photograph,”
Some think the rifle shot may have come from a rancher or hunter who is angry over the reintroduction of the wolves 20 years ago.
