Wyoming hunter that owns trucking company allegedly ran over wolf, tortured it, bound its mouth with tape, paraded it through bar before killing it

"A Daniel, Wyoming resident ran down the wolf with a snowmobile, and struck the animal until it was so disabled he could tape its mouth shut. Then he brought the live wolf home and into the Green River Bar to show it off before taking the animal behind the establishment and shooting it," according to Wyofile (a public-interest news service reporting on the people, places and policy of Wyoming).

A photo shows male adult wearing a plaid shirt, dark pants and boots with a baseball cap smiling next to a wolf with its mouth taped shut with red tape. It is legal to kill a wolf but it is not legal to possess a wolf in captivity.

Daniel, Wyoming is located in Sublette County near the center of the county.

Predatory Zone
Wyoming's predator zone covers 85% of the state, including the area across the border from Colorado, and allows for unregulated wolf killing without a license. In the predator zone, wolves are designated as predatory animals year-round and can be killed at any time on all lands except tribally-owned lands in the Wind River Reservation. There are no seasons or other limitations on killing wolves in Wyoming's predator zone (Google AI overview retrieved Tuesday, April 9, 2024 8:20 PM/predatory zone Wyoming - Google Search)
