Feds, Minnesota will pay for wolf trapping

The federal government and state of Minnesota will split the $220,000 cost of a renewed wolf-trapping program for 2015. The program uses federal trappers to trap and kill wolves near where livestock and pets have been killed. It was used for decades in Minnesota to help relieve concerns of farmers and ranchers, and reduce tensions over wolf populations in the state.
