The Internet Says This Wolf Was Killed In Michigan...We Found Out The Truth

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) debunked these rumors yesterday by releasing a statement that read in part, “We’re aware of a photo making its way around social media channels claiming to be a wolf shot and killed near Clare, Michigan.  The photo was actually taken at a game ranch in Canada. We appreciate people bringing this to our attention. Because this photo does not depict a Michigan wolf, we ask that people refrain from reporting this photo to the Report All Poaching (RAP) hotline. It’s great to have outdoor enthusiasts doing their best to notify us of possible illegal activity, but we’d like to free up our hotline phones for reports of poaching, hunter harassment or other violations, especially as we approach the start of the firearm deer season.”

Still, that’s a huge wolf.

He’s almost as big as…

You guessed it.
