DNR says Minnesota wolf population stable: Wolf packs ranging farther to find their food


ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota's wolf population remains generally stable, although wolves are having to roam farther to find their favorite food, the Department of Natural Resources reported Monday.

The DNR said the 2015 survey showed an estimated 2,221 wolves in 374 packs across the northern half of the state.

That's down about 8 percent from the 2014 estimate but close enough to call stable, the agency noted.
