Isabelle is the solo wolf from Isle Royale that made her way across frozen Lake Superior to Grand Portage, MN.
A young girl found her dead. She was sent to Ft. Collins for a necropsy. NPS news release.

An NPS news release today revealed the results of the necropsy on Isabelle, the Isle Royale wolf who crossed the ice bridge to Grand Portage only to die from a pellet-gun wound. The pellet passed between two ribs, causing fatal damage. Pathologists at the Colorado State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory conducted the necropsy. Remains will be returned to Michigan Tech for further research.

Absolutely senseless.

Sure hope some wolves migrate to IR this winter, and I know I'm not alone in that thought!

Isabelle escapes with her life from the IR pack and almost dies.  About a year later, she walks 15 miles through treacherous ice conditions only to be shot by a pellet gun.  

Senseless indeed (and a lot of other expletives I need not post).
