After Romeo's disappearance last fall, the Friends took on the role of searching for signs of him. A sizable amount of reward money was pledged by Friends and other concerned citizens around the country soliciting for information on "missing" posters that were hung on bulletin boards around town.
Dedicated sleuthing by this group of concerned locals led to the investigation that resulted in the arrest of two hunters, Park Myers of Juneau and Jeff Peacock of Lebanon, Penn., on May 21. The two were charged with a number of hunting violations, including an illegal wolf kill that took place last September.
Evidence that the wolf killed was Romeo hasn't been officially confirmed, but Robinson said he is "99.9 percent sure" that the hunters' bullet is responsible for his friend's disappearance.
A service is in the process of being planned to be held in Romeo's memory.
I hope this is not true. For more Wolf Howl posts about Romeo, use our search box at the top right of the pages.
I enjoyed reading the stories of Romeo's human and canine encounters. He truly was an enigma. I'm still hoping he found a pack of his own.
