DNR proposes to let Minnesota hunters take 400 wolves
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is proposing to let hunters and trappers take 400 wolves this fall.
Minnesota has around 3,000 gray wolves. DNR officials say research indicates the population could sustain a higher harvest quota, but say they're taking a conservative approach for the state's first season. The region's wolves come off the endangered list on Friday.
The DNR proposes to cap the number of licenses at 6,000 that would be allocated via lottery.
