MADISON, Wis. - It looks like Wisconsin's wolf hunting season is winding down fast.
Department of Natural Resources officials said hunters had reported killing 90 wolves as of Tuesday afternoon. According to DNA data, hunters trapped 55 of the animals.
The agency plans to end the season when hunters have taken 116 wolves or on the last day of February, whichever comes first.
The DNR already has closed two wolf hunting zones in far northeastern Wisconsin because hunters have nearly reached the zones' quotas.
