Hikers found the female wolf Tuesday on the north side of the park, says PJ White of the National Park Service. White says the wolf was in shock and dying, leading to the decision to euthanize it. An investigation into what caused the creatures injuries is underway. The predator was one of three known white wolves in the park.
The rare wolf was 12 years old, twice the age of an average wolf in the park, and was easily one of the most recognizable and sought after animals for viewing and photographing by park visitors.Click here for reuse options!
