Wolf Protest Scheduled In Virginia

Wolf advocates from the Iron Range will gather from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday dec. 1 at Thunderbird Mall in Virginia to protest Minnesota’s wolf hunting and trapping season. The event is co-sponsored by the Northwoods Wolf Alliance and Howling For Wolves.

Rally speakers will include Dr. Maureen Hackett, a Minnesota forensic psychiatrist and founder of Howling for Wolves; Reyna Crow of Duluth, co-founder of the Northwoods Wolf Alliance; and Lisa Fabish, owner of Black Wolf Kennels in Embarrass.

Minnesota’s late-season hunting and trapping period opened Nov. 24 and will continue until Jan. 31 or until harvest targets are reached.
