Man accused of killing wolf in off-limits area

 

December 28, 2017



JACKSON (AP) — Wyoming officials say they caught a man with a wolf he’d shot illegally.

The man has been cited for hunting during a closed season, failure to tag the animal and shooting from a roadway.

Wyoming Game and Fish Department warden Jon Stephens says he got a tip in early December about a man pursuing wolf into an off-limits area outside Jackson.

Stephens tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide he intercepted the alleged poacher driving his pickup truck. Stephens says the man admitted to the crime after Stephens saw the dead wolf in a box in the pickup truck.

State officials aren’t disclosing the suspected poacher’s identity. Wyoming law prohibits identifying anybody who shoots a wolf legally. They say the man’s case hasn’t been adjudicated yet.
