FRANKLIN COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – One wolf is dead and the other still on the loose in Franklin County Tuesday night. The wolves got loose from a cage near Robertsville Monday.

The sheriff’s department says one wolf was shot last night after a person found it inside an enclosed sheep pen.

The owner of the wolves had a license to raise the animals.

The remaining gray wolf is about 100 to 150 pounds and is normally not aggressive.

If you see the wolf, call the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department.

    Must’ve been getting hungry!

    Not sure why anybody would have thought it necessary to kill it, though, so it must have been a rural hick – just LOVES to shoot animals! Probably got off killing it. Maybe it was a “threat” to his profit from those sheep! Just more wacky behavior from those “rural rats”.

    If it does weigh 150 pounds then it is a huge wolf. I also don’t want it to die and hope it can somehow be captured unharmed. But I put the blame for death of the wolf where it belongs.
