The first part of Minnesota's first managed wolf hunt ended Sunday and hunters and trappers killed 147 wolves, the Department of Natural Resources says, MPR reports.
The DNR set a 200-wolf limit for the first part of the season, MPR says. The second part of the season begins on Saturday and runs through Jan. 31.
Laura Ragan, of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, tells MPR that Minnesota's 400-wolf limit for the whole season probably won't affect overall wolf population stability.
Legal action was not successful in stopping the hunt.
