GOGEBIC COUNTY — A wolf captured and collared in Gogebic County apparently traveled 2,000 miles on foot before getting hit by a car near Meadowlands, MN just north of Duluth, last month. The adult male wolf was part of the Michigan DNR’s wolf population monitoring effort. DNR officials say the wolf was captured and radio collared in May of last year in Gogebic County. From there, he ventured into Wisconsin last September. He had made it back to the U.P. by April, before traveling to Minnesota by May. Officials say he traveled as far west as McGregor, and as far north as Bigfork. The DNR says a car hit and killed the wolf on July 28th after he had traveled 2,000 miles in 14 months.
