Wisconsin says wolf season will be held next November

MADISON, WI (AP)--   Wisconsin will resume its wolf season next November after the animal is dropped from the federal endangered species list. 

The Department of Natural Resources said wolf season will begin Nov. 6.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced last month that it would delist gray wolves, citing thriving populations in the western Great Lakes region, Rocky Mountains and Pacific Northwest. Wisconsin law called for annual hunting and trapping seasons to resume if and when the wolf lost federal protection.

The DNR said Wisconsin has at least 1,034 wolves. The agency promised to “work collaboratively and transparently” to create a new wolf management plan that sustains the population.
