Wolf Killings Unsolved
Laramie, Wy – Federal wildlife authorities are offering
rewards of up to five thousand dollars for information about four separate wolf killings in southern Idaho.
Scott Kabasa is a special agent with the U-S Fish and Wildlife Service.
He says the wolves appear to have been shot sometime between the months of October and November. That's also when there were more hunters in the field.
Six wolves have been poached in southern Idaho this year. Statewide totals aren't available yet.
Killing a gray wolf is a violation of the Endangered Species Act, punishable by a fine of up to 100-thousand dollars and a year in jail.
The four wolves killed this fall were found near Idaho City, Riggins, Council and Stanley.
