This Dangerous Creature
Although wolves and coyotes couldn’t get hurt by the trap, that doesn’t mean that they won’t be vicious when freed. Lone wolves don’t usually attack people, but that’s not the case for wolves that have been trapped for untold amounts of time. Even if John helped the wolf, the wolf could still get aggressive.
Illegal to Hurt the Animal
Timber wolves are officially listed as endangered animals by the federal government. It is illegal to kill a timber wolf in Wisconsin. John was fully aware of this fact. However, he wasn’t even really sure if this was in fact a timber wolf.
