A timber wolf named Comet is seen at the Timber Wolf Preservation
Society Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012 in Greendale, Wis. Federal officials
removed Great Lakes wolves from the endangered species list in January.
Given free rein to manage the species, Wisconsin and Minnesota lawmakers
pushed aside the concerns of some environmentalists and established
their first seasons allowing hunters to bait, shoot and trap wolves. The
society opposes the hunts. (AP Photo/Carrie Antlfinger)
