Testing shows animal killed near Uehling was Wolf

FREMONT, Neb. (AP) – Nebraska wildlife officials say genetic testing has shown that an animal killed in January by coyote hunters north of Fremont was a gray wolf. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission said Wednesday in a news release that the female wolf was killed Jan. 28 near Uehling. The commission says testing showed the wolf originated from a wolf population in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. It was the second wolf killed in Nebraska in less than three months. In November, a rancher south of Bassett who was out checking on his livestock shot and killed an 81-pound male wolf.
