Yellowstone National Park officials killed a gray wolf that had become habituated to human food. Park spokesman Dan Hottle says since July, the 110-pound male wolf had approached staff and visitors at close range at least seven times and had been unsuccessfully hazed each time from the fishing bridge developed areas. the wolf was a member of Mollie’s pack from the Pelican Valley area, and was estimated to be between 2 and 4 years old.

Hottle says park visitors are reminded that intentionally feeding or allowing animals to obtain human food is a violation of park regulations, which may ultimately lead to the death of the animal involved. park rules require that you to stay at least 100 yards away from wolves at all times.
