      A wolf like this one was hit and killed by a car in Ontonagon County

      While motorists in Ontonagon County are used to dodging deer on the highways, a different type of wildlife tangled with a vehicle this weekend.

      According to the Ontonagon County Sheriff's Department, a wolf was killed after being hit. This happened on M-28, near Eastshore Road. The driver, Larry Pietila of Bruce Crossing, was unable to avoid hitting the wolf as it tried to cross the road. Pietila was not hurt, and his car only has minor damage.
