Two groups filed a lawsuit on Tuesday asking the Minnesota Court of Appeals to block the wolf hunting and trapping season set to start this Nov., The Star Tribune reported.
The Center for Biological Diversity and Howling for Wolves argued that the Department of Natural Resources did not allow enough time for adequate public input before announcing their new regulations, The Pioneer Press reported.
The two groups argued that the 30-day survey issued by the DNR over the summer, did not provide enough time for the public to weigh in on the new regulations, The Pioneer Press reported.
The DNR plans to hand out 6,000 licenses via lottery system and will set a quota for 400 animals between Nov. 3 and Jan. 31, The Star Tribune reported.
