MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Assembly gave final legislative approval overnight to a proposed wolf hunting season.

Some Democrats questioned the need for the hunt, and they objected to way it’s being organized. But supporters say a hunt is needed to reduce attacks by wolves on farm animal and hunting dogs.

The bill would allow hunting and trapping of grey wolves from mid-October through the end of February.

It was proposed after the federal government removed grey wolves from the federal endangered species list earlier this year.
