Wolf population down almost 20%

A DNR study shows the state's wolf population is about 20 percent lower than last year. The leader of a wildlife group says it proves the wolf hunt is working.

There are between 650 and 690 wolves in the state, and that's from about 830 last year.

Wisconsin Wildlife Federation executive director George Meyer says DNR will probably will scale back the quota for this year's hunt to slowly approach the agency's population goal of 350.

Meyer thinks the DNR's goal of 350 wolves is a healthy number for the state.
