More details on wolf shot in southern Michigan, the first sighting in a century

An animal a Michigan hunter thought was a big coyote when he shot it in January has been determined to be a gray wolf, the first time the species has been found in southern Michigan in more than a century, wildlife officials say.
The hunter shot the wolf in Calhoun County, in the southern reaches of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, while taking part in legal coyote hunting while accompanied by a guide, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources said.
