Wolf hunt begins; groups file intent to sue

MADISON (WKOW) -- There have been no kills reported the first day of Wisconsin's first organized wolf hunt.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says no hunters reported killing a wolf by early Monday afternoon. However, hunters have 24 hours to report a kill to the agency.

The DNR made 1,160 permits available through a lottery and set the kill limit for the general public at 116 wolves.

Wolves were placed on the endangered list in 1974. Those in the Great Lakes were removed earlier this year.

The Humane Society of the United States and The Fund for Animals filed notice that they plan to sue to get the animal back on the endangered species list in the Great Lakes region.
