Coyote Hunter Bags Wolf In Ohio

From the Toledo Blade:

_"I spotted what I thought was a coyote in a field about 200 yards from the school," said…28-year-old [Dustin] Gore. He wheeled around and headed home where he grabbed his varmint rifle….

Gore shot the beast and went to retrieve it on a three-wheeler. "I didn't realize it was a wolf when I shot. I thought it was an exceptionally large coyote."_ _Gore took it to Bellevue taxidermist Brian Weider, who in turn notified Brian Bury, state game protector in Sandusky County.

Bury confirmed that the animal indeed was a wolf…. Scott Butterworth, wildlife management supervisor for Ohio Wildlife District 2,…noted Ohio has no rule that protects wolves, and no prohibition against shooting them._
