A rare white wolf had to be euthanized after hikers found her suffering from a gunshot wound in the Yellowstone National Park. 

The reward for information leading to whoever shot the 12-year-old wolf rose to $10,000 on Friday after a wolf advocacy group matched a $5,000 reward offered earlier by the park.

Yellowstone officials put the severely injured wolf down after she was found suffering in the northern edge of the park, near Gardiner, Montana, on April 11.

The wolf was the alpha female of a group of wolves dubbed the Canyon Pack and a popular target of photographers.
