Wolf shot in Wadena County that was chasing grouse hunter's dog

Hubbard County Conservation Officer Samantha Hunter of Park Rapids reported a wolf being shot Saturday that was pursuing a grouse hunter's dog.

According to her official report on the DNR website: "(She) took a call from a grouse hunter who had shot a timber wolf that was chasing his hunting dog. The dog ran back to the hunter with the wolf on its heels. The hunter shot the wolf at about 8 yards with bird shot as it was coming directly at him/his dog. Proper measures were taken by the hunter to notify the DNR and enforcement action was not necessary. It was a frightening experience during a grouse hunting trip that will not soon be forgotten."

Hunter said the wolf was shot near Huntersville.
