The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reported that last Wednesday, Jan. 24, an uncollared adult wolf was caught in a coyote trap on a private ranch near LaBarge. The trap drag did not hold and the wolf ran off with the trap. The trapper notified FWS.

FWSs Mike Jimenez and his crew went to the area, tracked the wolf, and tranquilized a very old, gray, female wolf, FWS reported. The wolf had severe foot injuries from being held in the trap for several days, as well as extremely worn teeth; some teeth were worn down to the gum line. Due to the severity of the injuries to its foot, the wolf was euthanized, the agency reported.
