"I told him I had a wolf or a coyote, and I wanted to see what it weighed," Hammond said. "He said, 'I know you don't have a wolf, but I'll weigh it for you.'"

The animal checked in at 91 pounds -- about twice the size of an average Vermont coyote. [url=http://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20061006/N..., Gonyaw wasn't sure exactly what Hammond had flopped on the scale before him.[/url]

"All I want to know is what the heck it is," Hammond said

He is going to be sorry he said that.

[quote]In December 2002, SA Brown received information that two individuals had shot a collared wolf in the Kemmerer, WY, area (west central WY).

Last Fall 2004, both subjects appeared in federal court and pled guilty via federal plea agreements. Both men were fined $500.00, ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $2,128.00 each, sentenced to four days in jail, banned from hunting for two years, and one year of unsupervised probation.

[quote]But federal penalties for killing an endangered species are severe -- up to one year in jail and a $100,000 fine. A rancher convicted of illegally shooting a wolf might also lose his livestock lease on government land[/quote]

Slain animal a wolf, but likely not a wild one

It's highly doubtful that a 92-pound animal killed in Vermont last year signals a burgeoning native population, scientists say.
