Wolves are set to be taken off the endangered species list on January 27.
The change will affect Upper Michigan. Presently, you can only harm a wolf if it poses an imminent threat to human life. But on the 27th, you'll be allowed to kill a wolf if it presents a threat to your livestock or dog.
"Currently they are listed as a non-game protected species, and that's really out of the DNR territory, so it's not a DNR decision whether we would have some type of a recreational harvest on these animals," said DNR Wildlife Biologist, Brian Roelle.
Roelle estimates there are 7 to 800 wolves in the U.P.
