Bill seeking more wolf study heads to committee

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Opponents of Minnesota's wolf hunt will take their case to state lawmakers this week.

The Senate Environment and Energy Committee takes up a bill Tuesday that would require the Department of Natural Resources to conduct an annual wolf census. The DNR would also have to sample public opinion on hunting wolves.

Wolf baiting would be banned within 10 miles of tribal lands, and the DNR would have to produce a map that shows where wolves are a threat to livestock.

Howling for Wolves spokesman Maureen Hackett says the DNR needs to collect more data on wolf deaths and how the hunting season affects the overall population. Hackett says the hunt should be suspended until then.
