Wolves in rifle sights
For the first time in decades, Minnesotans will be able to hunt and trap wolves this fall.
Once listed on the endangered species list, the Department of Natural Resources has worked for years to restore the Minnesota population from about 300 wolves in the 1970s to about 3,000 present day.
"Wolf season isn't because of any overpopulation issues," DNR Area Wildlife Supervisor Blane Klemek said. "It's because mainly, the animals have been delisted."
