Wolf killing reward fund grows to $25,000

Yellowstone National Park is now offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information about the death of a gray wolf on the north side of the park. The wolf was shot and killed sometime between 1 a.m. on April 10 and 2 p.m. on April 11 near Gardiner, Montana. “Due to a tremendous desire by groups and individuals to donate for this reward, the park has established a Yellowstone Resource Rewards Fund through our charitable partner, Yellowstone Forever,” said Superintendent Dan Wenk. “Up to $25,000 from this Fund will pay for the reward in this case if there is a conviction. Any money leftover will be held for future resource violation cases in the park.” The wolf was a white female and part of the Canyon Pack. It is one of three known white wolves in the park. The wolf was about 12 years old, which is twice the age of an average wolf in the park. It ranged widely from Hayden Valley to the Firehole River area and into the northern portion of the park. It was one of the most recognizable wolves in the park. Anyone with information that could lead to the arrest or conviction of those responsible should call the ISB Tip line 1-888-653-0009 or text to 202-379-4761.
