Wis. Wolf Season Ends with 6 Extra Wolves Killed

Created: 12/26/2013 3:05 PM WDIO.com

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin wolf hunters and trappers went slightly over the quota this season.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources said Thursday the 2013 season ended with 257 wolves harvested. That's six animals over the 251-wolf limit.

The sixth and last zone to close was Zone 3, covering a narrow swath of northwestern Wisconsin. That zone closed at 5 p.m. Monday.

The quota for Zone 3 was 71 wolves and the closure was initiated when wolf 64 was killed Saturday. Hunters ended up taking 75 wolves in that zone, four over the quota.

Wisconsin's wolf season was to run through the end of February unless hunters reached their statewide limit.

The 2012-13 season ended two months early on Dec. 23 as well after hunters exceeded their 116-wolf limit by one animal.
