Hey guys, hate to drag up an old post but this "earthfirst" post was mostly plagiarized from the KY F/W web site EXCEPT the paragraph that said it was probably a formally CAPTIVE wolf.
"Great Lakes Region wolf biologists said the animal's dental characteristics - a large amount of plaque on its teeth - suggest it may have spent some time in captivity. A largely carnivorous diet requiring the crushing of bone as they eat produces much less plaque on the teeth of wild wolves. "

Just had to clear the air. May have been a pet, a private "zoo" item or something else that was either turned out, or broke free.
