Wolf Sighted Near Montana Middle School


KALISPELL, Mont. (UPI) — Authorities in Montana said they were unable to find a wolf seen wandering near a middle school and videotaped by a witness with a camera phone.

Flathead County sheriff’s deputies, Kalispell Police and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officers said they searched the area around Kalispell Middle School Saturday after several people reported spotting the wild animal and experts used the video footage to confirm it was a wolf, KECI-TV, Missoula, Mont., reported Tuesday.

FWP biologist Erik Wenum said the wolf appeared to be wearing a radio tracking collar, but it may not be functioning. He said the wolf may have traveled from as far away as Canada.

Authorities said they were unable to locate the wolf, which was last seen heading west Saturday near the Farm to Market and Pine Road intersection.
