A female collared wolf was shot by a private citizen in the Jardine area this past Saturday after displaying clear signs of escalating habituation. The wolf had recently come in close proximity to a number of homes, killed a cat as well as several chickens.
Until the spring of this year, the wolf lived primarily in Yellowstone National Park as a member of the Lamar Canyon pack. It dispersed from the pack and has lived in the Jardine area since that time.
FWP investigated the wolf mortality in consultation with USDA-Wildlife Services.
