Wolf found in South Dakota

STURGIS, S.D. South Dakota wildlife officials report a wolf carcass has been found in an interstate highway ditch near the Black Hills National Cemetery.

An official of South Dakota's Game, Fish and Parks Department says the animal may have come from a group of wolves that were reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park.

The last time a wolf was found in South Dakota was five years ago.

About one-thousand wolves in 140 packs live in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming -- steadily increasing since being reintroduced in Yellowstone and central Idaho in 1995 and 1996.
