Wisconsin to Set Fall Wolf Limit After Runaway Spring Hunt


Wildlife officials in Wisconsin are set to consider adopting a 130-animal limit for this fall's wolf hunt.

The Department of Natural Resources' vote Wednesday in Milwaukee figures to be contentious after conservationists complained hunters killed far too many wolves during a rushed spring season in February.

The Trump administration removed wolves from the endangered species list in January, triggering a Wisconsin law that requires the DNR to hold a hunt between November and February.

The DNR was planning to hold a season in November but a hunter advocacy group won a court order forcing the department to hold a season in February.
