SPRINGVILLE The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources is investigating reports of wolf sightings in a remote area near Springville.
On March 4, personnel with the USDA-Wildlife Services flew over the area while performing coyote control and spotted what appeared to be four wolves or wolf-dog hybrids.
Biologists hope a snowstorm in the area will help them track the animals.
"After picking up their tracks and locating the animals from the air, the capture company should be able to capture one or two of the animals by shooting a net over them from a helicopter, said Kevin Bunnell, wildlife section chief for the DWR, in a prepared statement. Then we can examine the animals and draw blood samples to see if the animals are related to the wolves released in Yellowstone National Park."
