Wolf Found Dead in SD Came From Yellowstone



PINE RIDGE, S.D. (AP) – A federal wolf specialist says a gray wolf found dead on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Reservation came from Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.
Mike Jimenez with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says information from a tracking collar identifies the wolf as a 3- to 4-year-old male that was part of a pack in the southeast part of Yellowstone. He tells the Rapid City Journal the wolf made the 400-mile journey to southwest South Dakota in less than two months.
The wolf was found dead along U.S. Highway 18 near the town of Pine Ridge, apparently struck by a vehicle late Sunday or early Monday. South Dakota does not have a resident wolf population, but the animals sometimes wander in from other areas.
