413 wolves were killed "not to protect public safety, not to control the population size, and not to reduce conflicts with people. It was for sport, for fun and for trophies." Far over 1/4 of the living MN wolves were killed.

more than half of the wolves killed were less than 2 years old and almost a third were less than a year old.

“They were not problem wolves,” her letter read. “They were not in conflicts with people, livestock, or domestic animals. They were just wolves living wild and free in our north woods.”

Lange, whose Minnesota property is within one of the wolf hunting zones, also went after the “cruel methods” used to hunt and trap wolves, referring to “metal leg-hold traps that crush limbs, wire choke snares that cause painful brain bleeding, and bait like food and the calls of wolf pups in distress that lure adult protectors to their death.”
