Walz backs legislation prohibiting sport hunting of wolves

Gov. Tim Walz says he supports legislation to ban the recreational hunting of wolves in Minnesota if the federal government succeeds in removing them from the threatened list…And while he said he supports managing wolf populations, he added he doesn't think sport hunting is appropriate…Lt. Gov Peggy Flanagan, a member of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe, says the issue is personal for her because she's from the Wolf clan, and there's a rule against hunting your own clan.
