Wisconsin wolf population drops 19%

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- State wildlife officials say Wisconsin's wolf population is still well above its eventual goal.

The DNR says preliminary results from the 2014 winter count indicates at least 658 wolves are roaming the state.
That's down nearly 20% from last years count, but it's still double the DNR's population goal of 350 wolves.
Hunters and trappers killed 257 wolves during last year's hunt, up from 117 in 2012.
