I'm willing to bet people are mistaking these red wolves for coyotes. Of course no one is going to own up to this if it was a mistaken identity because of the possible huge fine and jail time.

Endangered Animal does not equal SAFE animal. Of course if your little child was attacked, I am sure you would forgive the animal right?

They might not attack people, but they do attack livestock. In years past, they were killed to protect cows, horses, goats, chickens, etc. So I am sure if they were hungry enough and in a pack, they would kill a child if presented an opportunity.

I hope they find the piece of garbage that did this and punish him/her to the fullest extent of the law. There is no reason for killing a wolf - red or grey. Wolves do not attack people.
