MADISON (WKOW) – Wisconsin's second wolf hunt begins on Tuesday with an increased kill limit this year.
Last year, the kill limit was 116 wolves. This year, the limit is up to 251.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the DNR says the increase is necessary to reduce the state's wolf population.
Some wolf experts say the quota is irresponsible and claim it could drive wolves back into a threatened status after a couple years.
