The state Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking the public’s help in finding whoever is responsible for the illegal killing of a gray wolf in Stevens County last month.
The department says a 2-year-old black female wolf from the Smackout Pack was found dead Feb. 9 near Cedar Lake in northeast Stevens County. A veterinarian’s examination determined the wolf had been shot.
The state and three non-profit groups are offering up to $22,500 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
