Six Michigan wolves killed

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — At least six wolves have

been killed during Michigan’s wolf hunt in the

Upper Peninsula.

The state Department of Natural Resources

updated the results Monday morning. The wolf season

started Nov. 15 and runs through December,

unless 43 are killed before the end of the year.

It’s the first hunt in Michigan since the wolf was

placed on the endangered species list nearly 40

years ago. A total of 1,200 people are licensed to participate

with firearm, crossbow or bow and arrow.

The DNR estimates the state’s wolf population at

658.
