MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) — Michigan authorities say at least 22 wolves have been killed in the Upper Peninsula during the state's first wolf hunt in decades.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says that's the total as of Monday morning, up one from last week. The department has expressed doubt that the hunt will reach its maximum of 43 by year's end, when the hunt wraps up. Frigid weather likely has kept the hunt in check.
Five of the maximum 16 wolves were killed in the far western U.P., 14 of 19 in four central counties and three of eight in the eastern U.P.
The wolf hunting season opened on Nov. 15. Before the season, the DNR estimated that Michigan had 658 wolves.
