Wolf hunt begins today


(WQOW) - The controversial wolf hunt begins today in Wisconsin.

Wolves are no longer an endangered species and the state estimates Wisconsin's wolf population at more than 1,500. The Department of Natural Resources wants to lower the number, but not by much. The plan is to take just 201 wolves.

Wisconsin is one of five states with a wolf hunt.
