Gray wolf off endangered list in Wisconsin

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW)--The gray wolf comes off the federal endangered species list Friday in three states, including Wisconsin.

The move will allow farmers to shoot wolves caught preying on livestock.

Wildlife officials say 4,400 wolves live in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan, the other two states where it loses endangered status.

The three states will also consider starting wolf hunting seasons.

Minnesota may have a hunt this fall in which 400 wolves could be killed.
