LANSING, MICH. — At least eight wolves have been killed during Michigan's wolf hunt in the Upper Peninsula.
The state Department of Natural Resources updated the results Wednesday morning, and the total was up one from Tuesday's report. The wolf season started on Friday and runs through December, unless 43 are killed before the end of the year.
It's the first hunt in Michigan since the wolf was placed on the endangered species list nearly 40 years ago. A total of 1,200 people are licensed to participate with firearm, crossbow or bow and arrow.
The DNR estimates the state's wolf population at 658.
