As per article some true numbers are finally being published.
“Minnesota’s wolf population is estimated at 3,000 animals, but that’s a February population figure. Pups are born in May, and the population might swell to 6,000 wolves, according to L. David Mech, a senior scientist with the Biological Resources Division, U.S. Geological Survey, and an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota. The population drops again by February as wolves are killed by other wolves, by state or federal trappers working at depredation sites or in collisions with vehicles.
“There’s probably 5,000 wolves in the woods right now,” said Mark Johnson, executive director of the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association.”
