(KDAL) - The Minnesota Court of Appeals has rejected a request for a preliminary injunction that would have stopped the state's wolf hunting and trapping season. That means the planned seasons this fall and winter will go on as scheduled. The DNR will issue 6 thousand licenses with the early season beginning on November 3rd and a late hunting and trapping season starting November 24th. The target harvest in Minnesota is 400 and the DNR says the season will not have a significant impact on the wolf population of about 3 thousand. The Court of Appeals ruled the petitioning groups, the Center for Biological Diversity and Howling for Wolves, did not meet the burden of proving irreparable harm for an injunction to be issued.
