Deer Hunters in Central Minnesota Asked to Look for Wolves Opening Weekend

Deer hunters are being asked to look for signs of wolves as they head out for the firearms opener this weekend. A pack of wolves has been living just north of the Twin Cities. Some people are amazed and others are angry. Isanti County Farmer Allen Tacheny worries about wolves killing his cattle. They're big and they're around here and we're afraid they're going to eat our calves,"… The Keocher and Tacheny farms are near the University of Minnesota's Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve in East Bethel. It’s a 9-square-mile research site of nearly untouched wilderness…this is the farthest south a reproducing pack of wolves has been found in Minnesota in recent history. The den they used is only 45 minutes from downtown Minneapolis.
