Minnesota Wolf Hunt Closing

Posted: Updated:


     Minnesota's first wolf hunting season closes tonight.
     The Department of Natural Resources says 395 wolves have been killed so far -- just five wolves short of the overall quota of 400.
   The agency is still having problems with its automated system for tallying the numbers, which hunters and trappers are required to check. 
    State officials say the glitch likely stemmed from the change in years.     
       Wolf hunting opponents say the problem reinforces their concerns about the season.
      This is the first year Minnesota has held a wolf hunt since the species came off the endangered list.
