39 wolves killed in hunting season's first weekend

| No Comments

Minnesota's first wolf hunting season opened Nov. 3, and by the following afternoon 39 wolves had been killed, the Star Tribune reported.

According to the Department of Natural Resources, 32 of the wolves were killed on the first day, the Star Tribune reported.

All 1,600 available wolf hunting licenses were sold within 5 minutes Monday, the Associated Press reported.

An effort to block wolf hunting was struck down by the Minnesota Supreme Court last week, the Associated Press reported. A separate wolf hunting-and-trapping season will begin Nov. 24.

Quotas are set at 200 wolves for each of the two seasons, the Star Tribune reported.
