ST PAUL, Minn. — A conservation officer is investigating after a timber wolf was recently found dead and more than dozen ducks were found dumped along the road about 30 miles apart in central Minnesota.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources said the timber wolf was found shot to death in Buckman, Minnesota. According to state law, it’s illegal for anyone to hunt or trap wolves in the state. The ducks were found dumped near the side of a road in Little Falls, Minnesota. It’s unclear if the two incidents are related.
