DNR survey finds Minnesota wolf population stable


Minnesota had an estimated 2,278 wolves in 439 packs last winter, up just a tick from the year before, according to survey results released Monday by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

The winter survey estimate showed several more wolf packs across the wolf range — about the northern one-third of Minnesota — but the population was statistically unchanged from the estimate of 2,221 in 2015, the DNR said.

"The consistent wolf population surveys over the last several years are further evidence of the health and stability of Minnesota's wolf population," said Dan Stark, large carnivore specialist for the DNR.
