This Dangerous Creature
Wolves and coyotes might not be hurt by the trap, but they’re not happy when they get out. Typically, lone wolves don’t attack humans, but a trapped one could act mean. If John got the timber wolf out, he must remember to be very careful. The animal might not be grateful for the assistance.
Illegal to Hurt the Animal
Timber wolves are listed on the endangered species list by the federal government. Wisconsin also prohibits the killing of timber wolves. Therefore, John could get jail time or have to pay a fine if he shot and killed the animal. Was John certain this was a timber wolf, though?
