ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Supreme Court has rejected an effort to block the state’s wolf hunting season from opening Nov. 3.

Without comment, the high court denied an emergency motion by the Center for Biological Diversity and Howling for Wolves to stop the upcoming wolf hunting and trapping seasons, which will be Minnesota’s first since the region’s wolves came off the endangered list last January. The order was signed by Chief Justice Lorie Gildea.

The two groups claimed the Department of Natural Resources failed to follow proper procedures for taking public comments before issuing its regulations for the upcoming season. DNR officials disputed that.

The DNR plans to let hunters and trappers take 400 wolves out of a population estimated at around 3,000 wolves during the split season.
