Wolf numbers steady in Wisconsin
MADISON -
The number of wolves in Wisconsin seems to be fairly stable, but still above the DNR's goals.

Survey results released by the DNR show around 950 wolves roamed the state last winter.

That's up slightly from the year before.

Wolf surveys are conducted annually during the winter, when snow provides good tracking conditions.

About 100 volunteer trackers help the DNR survey the population.

Wolves are on the endangered species list right now, but the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed removing that protection.

That would return wolf management authority to the state.
