$10,000 Reward for White Wolf Information

Written by on May 15, 2017

The reward has doubled for information leading to whoever shot a famous white wolf that died last month in Yellowstone.

The reward rose to $10,000 on Friday, after a wolf advocacy group matched a $5,000 reward offered earlier by Yellowstone National Park. The Montana group Wolves of the Rockies is offering the additional $5,000 reward.

Hikers discovered the mortally wounded wolf April 11, inside Yellowstone near Gardiner, Montana, and Park staff euthanized the animal due to the severity of her injuries. National Park Service law enforcement believes the wolf was shot on the north side of the park, near Gardiner, or near the Old Yellowstone Trail which is located in the park on the northern boundary.

The wolf was more than 70 miles from where it could legally have been shot on sight in Wyoming two weeks later, when wolves were taken off the endangered list.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Tip Line at 888-653-0009.
