Swiss group offers reward to find wolf shooter

A Swiss animal protection organization Thursday offered a reward to anyone who helps authorities track down a shooter who illegally killed a wolf in the Alpine country last week…It did not aim to act as judge and jury itself, and would hand over any information to the justice authorities…The pack is the first to have been spotted in Switzerland since wolves returned to the country in the mid-1990s. The dead animal is the second to have been killed illegally since the revival of the Swiss wolf population, which experts count at around 20 individuals.
