Two wolves poached, says G&F

Jan 11, 2013 - From staff reports

Wyoming Game and Fish Department game wardens are looking for information about the illegal killing of two gray wolves in the Gros Ventre area near Jackson.

North Jackson Game Warden Bill Long said one dead wolf, which had been shot, was found in the Gros Ventre area in early December. A second wolf, which also was shot, was found on Dec. 21, several miles from the first wolf carcass.

"These illegal killings of wolves are plain and simplepoaching, with total disregard for the state's efforts to properly and adequately manage wolf populations in order to maintain recovery goals. Actions like these are a result of individuals that consider themselves above laws and regulations; such self-centered actions hurt all of us in the long run," Long said.
