Authorities are looking into the deaths of two timber wolves found Sunday morning on U.S. Highway 71 south of Little Mantrap Lake near Hubbard County 41.


The wolves were lying on the shoulder of the highway north of Park Rapids. They appeared to have been shot, said DNR Conservation Officer Sam Hunter. They were found around 9 a.m.

"There's timber wolves around. It's pretty heavily wooded up there and I've seen them quite a few times," she said.
