WI DNR enables another over-quota wolf kill

[Updated] Trappers with iron devices, then head shots, and hunters using only-in-Wisconsin-allowed dog packs have about another hour finished the 2014 'hunt' by registering the killing of four disposable wolves over the DNR's non-quota quota that was exceeded days ago

This tolerated overkill is now in its third straight year - - yielding a total of 11 registered extra kills (and God knows how many other illegal 'shoot, shovel and shut-up' poachings.)

I warned about this probable overkill before Thanksgiving, having urged the DNR to close the hunt then as the 'quota' was nearly filled.
