According to an Associated Press report, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game has confiscated a carcass which wolf advocate Lynne Stone tagged as her own in hopes of getting the wolf counted towards the quota for this year’s wolf hunt.

The Idaho officials believe the wolf is the alpha female from the Butte pack, which was killed by state officials near Stanley last fall. According to the AP report, officials believe Stone tracked down the carcass, used her own hunting tag and then called the state to report it as a wolf she had shot and killed herself – which if believed would have counted the wolf towards the hunt quota.

Stone is the director of Boulder-White Clouds Council, which is an environmental group based in Ketchum.
