Bigfoot Evidence reader Joe Fitz and Michael Brookreson are our official wildlife reporters. This week's news item is about a grey wolf seized by the MDOC from a Greenville, Missouri hunter after they got wind he had it tested and it came back pure with no domestic dog or hybrid mixing. They basically told him to enjoy his picture because that's all he could keep as their official position is still that there are no Grey Wolves in the Missouri Ozarks. Joe writes:
Genetically pure WOLF shot and killed by a hunter and then Seized by the MO Department of Conservation in Greenville MO. This eastern Ozark wolf was NOT supposed to exist though locals had insisted they were there for years and no. They didn't confuse them with a coyote or domestic dog. So MDOC hears about this and tells the guy to enjoy his picture because he cannot have his trophy back as there are no wolves in Missouri. After that they whispered to him that not only was it real. But tests revealed it to be a 100% pure grey wolf. No domestic mix or hybrid/pet. Pretty cool for those of us that that believe there's a tiny bit more than what they tell us.
My best friend Matt. My ex law partner! Almost 100 Pounds. Get this Joe. They aren't supposed to be there. Or exist. Yet MDOC found out this guy had it tested and seized it'.
Here is a screen capture of the MO state highway patrolman that helped seize the wolf and the last photo the guy will ever see of his kill. I obtained them from my old law partner who got the images from the circuit clerk of Wayne County MO where the wolf was seized. It does prove one thing I guess. When it comes to rare and exotic species and the state and local government's official positions on the matters of these animals existing or being taken in their jurisdictions, they certainly aren't above simply hauling something they want to remain hidden away. - Michael
