State officials are looking into a report by an elk hunter, who reported that he shot a wolf in Union County last Saturday. The 38 year old man said he was hunting elk alone, when he repeatedly noticed some type of animal moving around him. He assumed they were coyotes, until one of them began to run directly at him, while another made its way around him. He began to scream at it, and fearing for his life shot it. It’s being investigated as an incidence of self-defense.
