DNR cuts wolf quota by nearly half

…Neither hunters nor people who want to protect wolves are happy about the decision.  DNR officials say they decided to curtail wolf hunting after a recent survey by the agency showed the state’s wolf population has declined by 24 percent since 2008, when the agency counted 2,921 wolves.  Last winter, the agency counted 2,211 wolves.
