A reward is being offered to help find whoever shot and killed a female wolf in Eastern Washington near the Idaho border.

Oregon State Police say troopers and Department of Fish and Wildlife personnel found the dead wolf on an embankment on Forest Service Road 66 between Twin Lakes and Fish Lake on Aug. 5. It was roughly seven miles north of Halfway, Oregon. 

The wolf was known as OR112. It’s a two-year-old gray-collared female that was part of the Keating Pack.

OSP said the wolf appears to have been shot, likely on the morning on Aug. 4.
