Possible Wolf Poisoning Under Investigation
Jackson, WY – A wolf's death is being investigated as part of the probe into the poisoning of over 20 dogs in western Wyoming and Idaho. Originally, it was believed that wolves were the targets of the pesticide-laced meat baits. That theory has come into question with the finding of the poson inside the town of Jackson. U-S Fish and Wildlife Service special agent Dominic Dominici says a wolf carcass was found about three weeks ago. He says since the dead wolf was found in the Greys River area, it may have been poisoned too. Dominici says the Oregon lab that received the carcass has a backlog of samples to test right now, so he's still waiting for the results. He hopes to have those results within the next two weeks.
