Wolf-hybrid killed in vehicle collision in Franklin County

In the early morning hours on Friday, June 19, a Franklin County resident accidentally hit and killed a large canid with his vehicle on Highway 36 between Williams Creek and the parking lot at Emigration Summit. Suspecting the deceased animal was a wolf, the motorist quickly reported the incident to the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

Fish and Game has since learned that the deceased animal is a wolf-hybrid. The owner of the dog learned of the incident via Facebook and has confirmed the animal as her missing 10-year old adult female wolf-hybrid.
