DNR to release latest wolf population estimates this month
State wildlife officials are planning to release their latest wolf population estimates later this month.
The Department of Natural Resources plans to release the data during a public meeting at a Wausau hotel on June 16. Agency officials have declined to release the data any earlier.
The most recent estimates for the winter of 2014-2015 put the population between 746 and 771 wolves across the state.
Wisconsin held three wolf seasons before a federal judge placed Great Lakes Wolves back on the endangered species list in 2014.
