The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) released its final wolf management plan for 2022-2023, which will replace the plan last updated in 2001 and guide the state’s wolf conservation efforts for the next decade. The new plan emphasizes conflict-prevention between wolves and livestock and commits the state to providing technical guidance for livestock owners on non-lethal and preventative ways to avoid wolf predations. Wolves in Minnesota are protected by the federal Endangered Species Act and may not be hunted.
