Reintroduction of the wolves has been focused on the five counties of the Albemarle Peninsula: Beaufort, Dare, Hyde, Tyrrell and Washington. That area includes the Alligator River and Poquosin Lakes national wildlife refuges.
Under rules set in 1995, landowners in those counties may remove a nuisance red wolf if it attacks livestock or pets. It’s also not illegal to accidentally kill a red wolf through otherwise legal activity on private land, such as trapping coyotes, as long as the death is reported to the Fish and Wildlife Service within 24 hours.
The Fish and Wildlife Service asks anyone with information about the death of the red wolf to contact Capt. Frank Simms at 252-216-7504 or Special Agent Jason Keith at 919-856-4786, ext. 34.
