Wolf killed in Superior for showing no fear towards people

Posted: Updated:
SUPERIOR, WI -

A wolf, recently killed in Superior by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, was killed for apparently showing no fear towards people.

According to Wisconsin Public Radio, a pack of wolves had been greeting workers for several weeks this fall at the Pokegema Rail Yard in South Superior. 

DNR officials say, when non-lethal actions were taken to scare them off, one wolf in particular would stay behind.

Traps were set, the wolf was captured, and the decision was made to euthanize the animal. 

The gray wolf is currently listed as endangered in the Great Lakes region, but officials say it would have likely caused conflict if relocated.
