(Minnesota) — With the news of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service set to remove the wolf from the federal threatened species list, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is extending its wolf management public input period until November 20th.

Concerned residents that wish to voice their opinion on how the State manages wolves can do so on the DNR’s website. Minnesota’s wolf management plan, which was last updated in 2001, provides guidance on how the state manages wolves, including population management, depredation control, public safety and more. 

The DNR intends to share a draft updated wolf management plan for public review in early 2021 and will take comments on the plan itself at that time. Links for the State’s current wolf management plan and the federal delisting announcement can be found with this story.
