Yellowstone wolf: 926F Spitfire killed by a hunter – The Washington Post

It was a chance encounter between Marc Cooke and 926F.The wolf looked as though it could be a dog. It paced about 50 yards off the road where Cooke’s wife spotted the female, closer than most wolves got to human admirers at Yellowstone National Park. The trip was her first time out with her husband to search for the predators.Cooke snapped a picture of the wolf that some enthusiasts call Spitfire.That was in August 2012, a few months before a hunter legally killed Spitfire’s mother outside the park.The pack leader was affectionately known as “06” to her followers, for the year she was born, and Cooke watched her from afar for years, he told The Washington Post on Sunday.
