MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin wildlife officials say hunters have reported killing 20 wolves since the state's first organized hunt began last week.
As of Tuesday, hunters reported taking six wolves in far northwestern Wisconsin's management zone; six wolves in the far northeastern zone; two wolves in the mid-northwestern zone; two wolves in the mid-northeast; three in the mid-central; and one in the south.
The hunt began on Oct. 15. It's set to run until hunters kill a statewide total of 116 wolves or until the last day of February, whichever comes first.
The hunt could end sooner in management zones where hunters meet zone-specific quotas. They're closet in the mid-northeast, where they can make three more kills before reaching the zone's five-wolf limit.
