Although still a long way from suspending the hunt, this vote is seen by the St. Paul Pioneer Press as a victory for the opponents of wolf hunting in Minnesota. On Monday, the Duluth News Tribune reported that a group that opposed this year’s wolf hunt, Howling for Wolves, released the results of a statewide survey that showed a majority of Minnesotans opposed the hunting and trapping of wolves. It remains a contentious issue with strong opinions on all sides.
