Wolf Hunting Opponents Push Bill Through Senate Committee
A committee in the State Senate has approved a bill that would suspend wolf hunting in Minnesota. The measure, dubbed the Wolf Data Bill, cleared the Environment and Energy Committee on Tuesday. It would require the Department of Natural Resources to suspend wolf hunting activity until the agency produces a wide range of reports concerning the state’s wolf population. It’s being pushed by the group “Howling for Wolves,” which has long sought to end wolf hunting and trapping in the state.
