Scientists warn of destabilization of wolves from hunt

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Scientists say the upcoming limited wolf hunt season in the state could destabilize its population.

Wolves were removed from the federal endangered list just two years ago, and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources say an estimated 800 wolves are living in the state.

Wolf season begins on Tuesday with the DNR allowing a recommended harvest of 275 wolves.

However, ecologists at UW-Madison say a population of 350 wolves in the state would be too low to manage.
