DNR: At Least 19 Wolves Killed In Michigan Hunt

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - At least 19 wolves have been killed during Michigan's wolf hunt in the Upper Peninsula.

The state Department of Natural Resources updated the results Wednesday morning. It says five wolves were killed in the far western U.P., 11 in central counties and four in the eastern U.P.

The wolf season started on 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.

Before the hunt, the DNR estimated the state's wolf population at 658.
