Three wolves were shot and left for dead near Fleetwood.

Federal officials are investigating the illegal killing of three wolves in Minnesota last month and are offering up a $2,500 reward for information.

The three dead wolves were found off St. Louis County Highway 8 near Fleetwood last month. Because the animals are federally protected, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service is investigating the case with the help of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Now, the Grand Forks Herald reports they are looking for the public’s help in gathering more information on the case. They are offering the reward for information that helps lead to the arrest and conviction of the poacher or poachers in the case.

Anyone who has information has the option to remain anonymous when submitting information. Information can be submitted via Minnesota’s anti-poaching hotline by calling (800) 652-9093
