A wolf running wild through the snowy landscape of Minnesota might sound pretty normal.

Apparently this this activist tried to free the wolf from a life in captivity. The attempt was misguided and the wolf would have died if not recaptured and brought back to live with its pack.

Thanks for this story. The activist was trying alright, trying to kill one of these beautiful creatures. Surely they must have known the wolf has only been in captivity. I am glad she was recaptured and taken back to her sisters who are also incaptivity.

Poor lost animal who doesn't know how to hunt and has no pack around for support and companionship....This "activist" obviously DOES NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT WOLVES....Who ever did this should be found and tried-in court-for STUPIDITY!!!

I read the article and nowhere did I read that an "activist" opened the the wolf cage. The article indicates that "someone" did this and they are trying to find out who. The headline is thus misleading, possibly in an attempt to discredit true animal activists?

ummmmmmmm it say that "someone" let them out. Why is the title stating an animal activist? Beautiful wolf, she was hungry and scared and now back with her sisters. I'm glad she is safe and probably received a good meal and curled up with her sisters and had a nap. :o)

Indeed, I find it hard to believe an presumed activist would do this unless there is visual evidence of cruelty involved in which case most activists would call upon authorities rather then simply opening up a cage or gate to a reserve. This was probably done by a nutcase in a sick attempt to scare the neighborhood.

A totally unjustified assumption by the media. They should correct and apologize for this publicly. Many thanks to those who rescued the wolf from very possible serious harm.

Thanks Sophie. I don't believe it was an activist either. The story doesn't say that and any educated activist would know better. A child maybe?

I live in MN and am outraged that the media is immediately assuming that the wolf was released by an "activist". The police have absolutely no clue yet as to who pried open the enclosure...for all we know it could have been a group of rebellious teenagers out to make a fuss. Damn the media for pointing their fingers at animal advocates and for fabricating lies that are being fed to the public about this situation! Any newspaper/station that has suggested this act was done by an activist should be charged with slander.
