Yellowstone National Park lost one of its resident wolves recently. The White Lady, as she was called, was one of three white wolves in the park and the Alpha of one of the eleven packs inside the park. She was a cherished treasure for tourists who visited Yellowstone, as well as the mother to fourteen living pups.
Necropsy declared that The White Lady had been killed via gunshot wound, and that the injury had killed her on April 10th. Now, the park has issued a reward of $5,000 to anybody who can produce viable information about the wolf’s killer.
She had lived a substantially longer life than most wolves found in Yellowstone. The White Lady was 12 when she died, nearly double the lifespan of the average wolf to live in the park. In this time she had given birth to twenty pups in total, fourteen of which lived past the age of one year old.
The White Lady was one of the single most recognizable animals in the park, and was frequently photographed by visitors who wanted to admire her beauty. Already she has been sorely missed, and officials at the park will reward anybody who comes forward with information to help them find the person responsible.
