RARE SIGHTING: Wolf Killed In Iowa

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says a coyote hunter bagged more than he bargained for this year.

Investigators say the hunter killed a wolf near Fairbank in Buchanan County in February.

The DNR is testing the animal to determine where it came from.

Although wolves are a protected species in Iowa, the DNR declined to issue a citation to the hunter since he thought he was shooting a coyote.

This is the first time in decades a wolf has been sighted in Iowa.
