Someone shot a white wolf in the Yellowstone National Park and left her to die. On April 11, the severely injured alpha female, of the Canyon Pack, was discovered by hikers near Gardiner, Montana – the wolf was wounded badly enough that she had to be euthanized.
On Friday, the non-profit group, Wolves of the Rockies, announced the offering of a $5,000 reward for information leading to the prosecution and conviction of whoever is responsible for killing the wolf. The group wrote:
Enough is Enough! (Please Share This Post)
Why is it wolf organizations and advocates have to protect and defend wolves within the established system? When criminals can kill wolves, any wolves, wherever and whenever they want.
This has to end!
Wolves of the Rockies is offering a $5000.00 dollar reward to anyone that leads to the successful conviction of the shooter of the Canyon Alpha Female. You information will be kept in the strictest confidence. If others would like to add to WotR Reward please make a donation with a comment for reward.
The motive for the killing is not known – KOTA News has reported that ranchers in the area have voiced their displeasure about wolves being reintroduced to the area.
