Houghton, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Michigan DNR is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of someone who shot a gray wolf Saturday in Houghton County.

It happened sometime between 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on M-26, a half-mile south of Twin Lakes.

The DNR says the shooter’s vehicle would have been parked along the west shoulder of M-26. Gray wolves are a federally endangered species and are protected in Michigan.

The maximum penalty for poaching a wolf is 90 days in jail or a fine of up to $1,000, or both, plus reimbursement of $1,500 to the state for the animal.

Poaching convictions also usually include a suspension of hunting privileges for a period of four years.
