First Sighting in 123 Years Wolf Shot Dead in Western Germany

A wolf was sighted in the Westerwald region of western Germany for the first time in 123 years in February. It didn't survive long. Hikers found its cadaver on Saturday after it was illegally shot dead. Wildlife conservationists are appalled and the local hunting association has offered a reward to find the perpetrator.
The dead wolf was found in a forest near the town of Gensingen in the Westerwald region of Germany.
