Minnesota Cattle President Concerned At Wolf Hunt Cut

Minnesota Cattle President Concerned At Wolf Hunt Cut

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has cut in half the number of wolf hunting licenses for the upcoming season to 220.  Minnesota Cattlemen Association President Dar Geiss says there’s disagreement as to how many wolves are causing predatory problems on the state’s livestock. He says while the numbers vary greatly the need for control is still there.

Geiss says predator control needs to have both hunting and trapping in order to adequately handle the problem.

Geiss says the number of wolves has varied anywhere from 1600 to 3500 and even in some cases up to 9,000 across the state.
