DNRE Investigates Wolf Poaching In Luce County

Officers with the Department of Natural Resources and Environment are investigating a wolf poaching in Luce County. Someone discovered the wolf in the middle of the road February 11 and contacted the DNRE in Newberry. A conservation officer says the wolf had been shot in one location and then moved to the area it was discovered, near Newberry. The DNRE is offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest. If you have any information, call the Report All Poaching hotline at 800-292-7800. Wolves are considered an endangered species and are federally protected animals in Michigan. They cannot legally be killed except in the defense of a human life. 9&10's Christina Vecchioni and photojournalist Justin DePrekel have more details on the investigation in Newberry.
