MSNBC and other news sources report that the alpha male Denali National Park Toklat wolf has been killed.
The alpha female of the pack had been killed in a trap less than two months ago.
The wolves had been protected in the park but had wondered outside of it. The wolves have been widely photographed.
Master guide Ray Atkins who led the hunt was quoted as saying
in the scheme of things, this is about as significant as one grain of sand in the Pacific Ocean.
The Save the Tolkat Wolves have some amazing pictures of the animals — including ones when they were heartbreakenly tame (regulations were later instituted to prohibit such close interaction)
