SALT LAKE CITY — State agriculture officials are abandoning efforts to find and trap a wolf believed to be in northern Utah.

Utah's Department of Agriculture and Food confirmed that it had pulled traps after finding no further sign of the wolf believed to be in Rich County. FOX 13 first reported on the discovery last week, after a calf was found killed with bite marks consistent with a wolf.

Under Utah law, if the animal were trapped it would be killed.
