Most of the wolves killed in Michigan's wolf hunt were problematic. According to the Michigan DNR 17 of the 23 wolves killed happened where they were causing problems for people.
Residents in the U.P. complained of wolves attacking livestock or pets and being fearful for their children. The DNR calls the first wolf hunt in decades a success but are continuing to analyze data to determine how well the hunting is accomplishing their goals. A target of 43 was set but only half of that was reached.
