Dead wolf found in Grand Teton National Park

By The Associated Press

GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK -- A dead female wolf found along U.S. 26/89/191 Monday afternoon might have been struck by a vehicle, according to the National Park Service.

The carcass was to be examined at a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service forensics lab in Oregon to determine the cause of death and which pack the wolf belonged to, the agency said Tuesday.

The sub-adult wolf was found about 2 1/2 miles south of Moran Junction after a park visitor reported seeing the dead animal about 2:30 p.m. Monday.

The condition of the carcass led park biologists to estimate the wolf died two days earlier.
