Hunters and trappers exceed Wisconsin wolf kill quota

MADISON, Wis. – Hunters and trappers exceeded Wisconsin's wolf kill limit by Wednesday morning and still had hours left to kill more of the animals.

The Department of Natural Resources reported that 135 wolves had been killed since the brief hunting season began Monday, which was 16 more than the state's limit of 119.

The agency estimated that about 1,000 wolves roamed the state before the hunt began. The department's population goal is 350.

The season had been scheduled to run through Sunday, but DNR officials said it would end throughout the state by Wednesday at 3 p.m. because so many of the animals had been killed in the first two days.

The wolf season has been one of the most contentious outdoor issues that Wisconsin has grappled with
