Lawmaker warns of court challenge over Minnesota wolf season

Email

Minnesota House members approved wolf hunting and trapping seasons on Tuesday despite warnings that the American Indian community may challenge it in court.

"When we make laws, we make laws for all the people of Minnesota," Rep. Kerry Gauthier, DFL-Duluth, said, before representatives approved a bill 82-49 that included the wolf seasons.

Up to 400 Minnesota wolves could be taken by hunters under the bill.
