Dead Wolf in S. Dakota From Yellowstone

A gray wolf was found dead on South Dakota’s Ridge Reservation last week, where wolves are not usually found, and biologists say it traveled there from Yellowstone National Park.  U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Specialist Mike Jimenez says the wolf apparently left the Yellowstone area around March near the end of the typical time wolves disperse.  He says it had been collared in February as part of the Delta Pack in the southeastern corner of Yellowstone.  Then Jimenez says the wolf traveled close to 400 miles in a two-month period – a long way for a wolf to travel, but not unheard of.  The wolf was found dead along US Highway 18 near Pine Ridge after apparently having been struck by a car.

  • Shouldn’t my dogs be KEEPING their hair now? - November 21, 2014
    I don’t understand why it’s happening now, when the temperatures are dropping well below zero, but my golden retriever’s blowing her coat. In a big way. And it’s not just her.
