Nevada Has First Wolf Sighting in 100 Years

RENO, Nev. (AP) — The Nevada Department of Wildlife has confirmed the first sighting of a wolf in the state in nearly 100 years.

Wakeling says wildlife officials recovered scat from the animal. A conservation lab at the University of Idaho confirmed the droppings were from a male offspring of a seven-member pack of wolves known as the “Shasta Pack” in Northern California.
