Isle Royale likely to get 20-30 wolves over a three-year span

The National Park Service announced plans Friday to move forward with its proposal to put 20 to 30 wolves on Isle Royale in Lake Superior over three years to bolster the nearly extinct population on the island and cull the growing herd of moose. The Park Service said it had completed a final Environmental Impact Statement. A formal decision will be announced after a monthlong waiting period, but the proposal is expected to move forward.
