Meeting in Wausau Wednesday, the board unanimously approved the higher level. Last year, 201 animals were set as the limit.</p><p>The quota includes 115 wolves set aside for the Chippewa bands off-reservation treaty rights. That quota will likely never be used as the tribes see the wolf as a sacred animal.</p><p>Sarah Johnson from the Timber Wolf Alliance in Manitowish Waters thinks the idea of raising the number by nearly 40 percent in one year without more study might be hasty.</p> Wed, 26 Jun 2013 23:27:17 +0000 Natalie Jablonski 4221 at http://wxpr.org DNR Increases Wolf Hunting Quota
