Wisconsin’s wolf hunt quota is lowered following months of conflict

From CNN:

(CNN)After months of tension between hunters and environmentalists in Wisconsin, the state’s Department of Natural Resources on Monday announced a limit of 130 wolves for a planned hunt in November — a move that has upset both supporters and detractors of the hunt.

The move by the state’s DNR was somewhat unprecedented, coming after the state’s Natural Resources Board, the policy-setting board for the DNR, approved a hunt of 300 wolves. The DNR has the final say on what the final quota for the hunt should be, but is expected to take the approval of the Natural Resources Board into account.
