Reward Offered for Help on Deaths of 2 Wolves
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service posted a reward of up to $10,000 for information about two endangered Mexican gray wolves found dead in a remote area of eastern Arizona.
A yearling female wolf was found dead near Vernon in the Apache National Forest on Nov. 5. The second dead wolf turned up Nov. 15 on the White Mountain Apache Reservation, agency spokeswoman Elizabeth Slown said.
The wolves are protected under the federal Endangered Species Act. Penalties for killing a wolf include up to six months in jail or a $25,000 maximum fine.
