Wolf hunters hoping for more wintry weather in the Upper Peninsula

Hunters have killed six wolves during the first three days of Michigan’s controversial wolf hunt in the Upper Peninsula.

Unseasonably warm weather has played a part in the hunt so far.

Debbie Munson-Badini is a spokeswoman with the Department of Natural Resources.    She says snow in the forecast is good news for most hunters in the Upper Peninsula.

“These animals, they already have their winter coats on, so they aren’t really active, running around when it’s in the 50’s,” says Munson-Badini, “As it gets colder outside, and we get that snow on the ground, we should see things get a little bit easier for hunters.”

Badini says DNR officials expect hunters will kill 43 wolves by the end of December.
