The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission are requesting assistance with an investigation involving the suspected illegal take of a radio-collared red wolf that was recently found dead. The federally protected red wolf was found with an apparent gunshot wound on Tuesday, January 7, 2014, southwest of Columbia, in Tyrrell County, North Carolina. A total of 14 wild red wolves were known to have died in 2013 including three struck and killed by vehicles, one death as a result of non-management related actions, and nine confirmed or suspected gunshot deaths. The cause of the remaining wolf’s death is currently undetermined.
The red wolf is protected under the Endangered Species Act as an experimental, non-essential population. This means that relaxed regulations allow landowners to kill a red wolf if it attacks their livestock or pets. Additionally, a red wolf that is taken incidentally to any type of legal activity (e.g., hunting coyotes following state regulations) on private lands in the red wolf recovery area does not constitute a violation of the federal regulation, provided that the taking is not intentional or willful, and is reported to the Service or the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission within 24 hours. The Service believes that no legitimate conservation purpose would be served by bringing an enforcement action under the ESA in such cases, and only intentional or willful take will be prosecuted on private lands.
It is important to report red wolf incidents quickly so that Service personnel can respond quickly to minimize conflicts and retrieve any carcasses for necropsy before such carcasses deteriorate to the degree that necropsy results are compromised.
If someone accidentally kills a red wolf, they must report it by calling the Fish and Wildlife Service at 1-855-4-WOLVES (1-855-496-5837), or the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission at 1-800-662-7137.
Anyone with information that directly leads to an arrest, a criminal conviction, a civil penalty assessment, or forfeiture of property on the subject or subjects responsible for the suspected unlawful take of a red wolf may be eligible for a reward of up to $2,500.
Anyone with information on the death of this red wolf or any others, past or future, is urged to contact Resident Agent in Charge John Elofson at (404) 763-7959, Refuge Officer Frank Simms at (252) 216-7504, or North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission Officer Robert Wayne at (252) 216-8225.
