Wolf found dead in Arbor Vitae

A local conservation warden says a wolf found dead in Arbor Vitae last month was sent to Madison for a necropsy to help determine its cause of death.

“We don’t know what if it was shot or not; we don’t know what happened to it,” DNR conservation warden Tim Ebert said.

“I don’t know if was shot, or natural causes, or hit by a car. I have no idea at this time.”

The wolf was found near the intersection of Rux and North Farming roads. Ebert said it was within 150 yards of the road.

Results from Madison will determine how DNR law enforcement moves forward.

“Basically, I’m waiting for the return on the necropsy to do the cause of death, and then from there determine where we’ll go – if any further investigation, you know, like if it was shot,” Ebert said. 

“Obviously, if there was blunt-force trauma, something consistent with a car, that would be the end of it.”
