Reward offered in wolf shootings near Park Rapids

This is the photo taken by the DNR on Highway 71.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to a conviction in the case of two timber wolves left dead on a highway north of Park Rapids May 8.

The reward money is being offered by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, said Minnesota DNR Conservation Officer Sam Hunter.

The wolves were dumped on U.S. Highway 71 north of Park Rapids. Hunter believes the animals were shot, possibly at another location. They were found south of Little Mantrap Lake near Hubbard County 41.

Hunter is asking for any information about the "illegal taking" of the wolves and those responsible. Callers can reach her at 255-4553 or 1-800-652-9093.
