Hunters and trappers blow past Wisconsin's wolf kill target
Hunters and trappers exceeded their target in all six of the state's management zones. Wisconsin law hands wolf hunters and trappers significant advantages during the season. Unlike with deer hunting, wolf hunters and trappers can operate at night and use dogs to corner wolves. Wayne Pacelle, president of animal rights group Animal Wellness Action, said in a statement Wednesday that killed Wisconsin wolves didn't stand a chance. Lawmakers in neighboring Minnesota have introduced dueling bills that would ban wolf hunting and establish a season.
