day, month date, year
An investigation by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has found no evidence of human-caused mortality in the death of a female Mexican gray wolf found dead in Eastern Arizona's Apache National Forest in October, 1999. A preliminary examination found the presence of premortem-induced puncture wounds characteristic to bites from another animal. The actual cause of death is suspected to be a bite wound to the neck inflicted by a cougar.
