Minnesota Court Rejects Attempts to Block 2012 Wolf Hunt

The latest attempt to block the wolf hunt in Minnesota scheduled to open Nov. 3 was rejected by the Minnesota Supreme Court, the Star Tribune reported.

The efforts of the Center for Biological Diversity and Howling for Wolves to stop the wolf hunt were shot down by the Minnesota Supreme Court, the Pioneer Press reported.

The two organizations argued that the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources did not give the public ample opportunity to weigh in on the opening of the wolf hunting and trapping season, the Star Tribune reported.

The wolf hunting and trapping season set to open Nov. 3 will be Minnesota's first wolf hunting season since the animals were taken off of the endangered species list last January, the Pioneer Press reported.

With less than a month to go before the season opener, the DNR has yet to sell 614 of its 3,600 available hunting and trapping permits, the Star Tribune reported.
