Conservation officers are seeking information on the possible poaching of a wolf that occurred in Cheboygan County sometime between Jan 14 - 19.  The wolf was one of two pups that were radio-collared by the DNRE & USDA's Wildlife Services in Oct. 2010. 

The pups movements had been tracked with the last live signal occurring on Jan. 14.  Wildlife biologists received a mortality signal on Jan. 19 and located the collar from the wolf pup alongside Riggsville Road, about 5 miles east of Interstate 75.  The animal has not been recovered.

Anyone with information can contact Lt. Jim Gorno of the DNRE's Law Division in Gaylord at 989-732-3541, extension 5100.  A $1,500. reward has been offered for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for killing the wolf.

Anyone with tips about this incident or other hunting violations should call the All Poaching line, 24 hours a day, at 800-292-7800.  Information can be left anonymously.

One of two wolf pups they only have killed and taken!MadBroken Heart  The comment that "Every wolf that is poached complicates our efforts and the efforts of other Great Lakes states to get wolves off the endangered species list and return management to the state natural resource agencies," speaks volumes not to mention how it complicates the Wolves' survival! 

To see one of the Wolf pups and read more about it, I am crossposting our WHAP thread & photo dated 7/28/10 announcing the first breeding pair:  "Lower Peninsula, MI:  Wild Pup is the 1st observed in about a century"
