By now you have probably heard bits and pieces about the Parkston wolf. During the early daylight hours of Wednesday, Jan. 9, Jim Sinkebeil and Jim More, both Minnesotans, were driving around the rural Parkston area looking for coyotes. Sinkebell is originally a Parkston native, and he still owns land in the Parkston area.Sinkebell shot what he thought was the biggest coyote he had ever seen near an old farmstead 5 miles east and 3 miles south of Parkston. When he showed his “coyote” to hunting buddy Bryan Maas of Parkston, Maas immediately suspected that they were looking at a wolf. The guys called Hutchinson County conservation officer Brian Humphrey of Menno, as well as state trapper Randy Becker of Mitchell.
