Wyoming Game and Fish Department game wardens are seeking information about the illegal killing of two gray wolves in the Gros Ventre area near Jackson last month.  Game officials say one wolf that had been shot and killed was found in the Gros Ventre area in early December while a second wolf, which had also been shot, was found on December 21st several miles from the first wolf carcass.  Spokesman Ray Hagaman recalls Wyoming had assumed management of gray wolves when they were removed from the federal list of threatened and endangered species in September of last year and the hunt from October first through December 31st for the most part went well. The formulas that Game and Fish biologists use to establish wolf hunting quotas and seasons took into account all sources of mortality, including the potential of some illegal take.  Wyoming’s Chief Game Warden Brian Nesvik the department is stepping up its law enforcement efforts. Nesvik says the department is seeking the public’s help with this investigation into the two poachings.
