Reward Grows for Info on White Wolf Shooting
Written by Andrew-Rossi on May 31, 2017
Yellowstone Park officials have increased the reward for information about the shooting of a rare white wolf in April.
Yellowstone National Park is now offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individuals responsible for shooting the wolf on the north side of the park, near Gardiner, Montana. Park Service law enforcement believes the incident happened sometime between April 10 at 1 a.m. and April 11 at 2 p.m.
Park Superintendent Dan Wenk says that there has been a tremendous response by groups and individuals who have offered to donate towards the reward – so the park has established a Yellowstone Resource Rewards Fund through their charitable partner, Yellowstone Forever. Up to $25,000 from this Fund will pay for the reward if there is a conviction, and any money leftover will be held for future resource violation cases in the park.
