Group Urges Gov. Dayton To End Wolf Hunt

A Minnesota-based group asked Gov. Mark Dayton to put a stop to the wolf-hunting season Friday afternoon at the State Capitol. The group “Howling for Wolves” says too many wolves are dying, even though the number that hunters can kill in Minnesota was slashed in half this year, compared with 2012. Last year, 413 wolves could be harvested. This year, the number is set at 220. After last year’s season, it was estimated that the state’s wolf population went down by a fourth since 2008, which is why the number of licenses was reduced for 2013.
