Yes, it was a wolf, in Kentucky
The Carrier Journal
The first documented free-ranging wolf in Kentucky's modern history was shot and killed by an unsuspecting hunter, state wildlife officials have announced. No charges are expected to be brought because there's no reason for any hunter to expect a wolf to be in the state, since they haven't been here for more than a century, according to the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

African species report: Warthog
By John McAdams
In my last article I profiled the impala. This week I'll profile my personal favorite among the animals of Africa: the warthog. When I made my first trip to Namibia as a young man, the warthog was the first animal that I hunted, and the thrill of that experience got me completely hooked on Africa. I find warthogs to be ugly, yet at the same time beautiful and magnificent creatures that are quite exciting to hunt.
