      Wolves coming off endangered list soon

      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.
