Feds say wolf found dead in Colorado was poisoned

A female gray wolf found dead near Rio Blanco in 2009 after wandering about 1,000 miles from the Yellowstone region was poisoned, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The Service said today that the wolf was killed by Compound 1080, a poison whose only legal use in the U.S. is in collars worn by sheep and goats as protection against coyotes.

The poison is illegal in Colorado.
