MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – More than a third of the state’s targeted wolf population from three hunting zones has been harvested with about six weeks to go in the season, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Officials said Tuesday 97 of the 253 wolves in the northwest, east central and northeast zones combined have been harvested. That accounts for about 38 percent of the overall population. Officials said 48 of the targeted 187 wolves have been harvested in the northwest region, four of the 10 targeted have been harvested in the east central region and 45 of the 56 targeted have been harvested in the northeast region.

The wolf hunting season started Nov. 24 and will end on Jan. 21, 2013, provided the hunting zone’s target harvest is not met.
