From the Mitchell Republic in Mitchell, S.D.:

Given the recent questions and dialogue around a possible wolf being killed near Parkston, Game, Fish and Parks (GF&P) would like to provide additional information for clarification.

GF&P was contacted by an individual who shot a large canid-like animal. Due to the size of the animal, GF&P staff questioned whether the animal could possibly be a gray wolf or some type of hybrid, domestic or wild. The protocol that GF&P follows in these situations is to take the animal into possession and work with U.S. Fish and Wildlife (USFWS) officials to ascertain the identity of the animal.
