DNR says wolf population now stable after first hunt


Eau Claire (WQOW)- The DNR says Wisconsin's wolf population has stabilized.

This year's wolf count puts the population at a little more than 800 animals.  That's down slightly from last year but its still far more than the agency's goal of 350 wolves.  An advisory committee will meet later this month to make recommendations for hunting and trapping quotas for this year. Hunters and trappers took 117 wolves in the state's first wolf hunt last year.
