Wolf Hunters Have Better Success than Expected Submitted: 11/21/2012
Madison - Wolves are being harvested faster than expected in the state.

Department of Natural Resources officials say hunters reported killing 90 wolves as of Tuesday afternoon.

According to DNR data, hunters trapped 55 of the animals.

The agency plans to end the season when hunters have taken 116 wolves or on the last day of February, whichever comes first. The DNR already closed two wolf hunting zones in Wisconsin because hunters have nearly reached the zones' quotas.
