Wolf hunting season ends
Wyoming's wolf hunting season ends today.
Hunters are allowed to kill a total of 52 wolves ... but as of Friday afternoon, they had taken only 43.
It's Wyoming's first wolf hunting season since the federal government reintroduced wolves to the Yellowstone ecosystem in the 1990s.
Besides those taken during hunting season, 25 wolves have been killed around Wyoming this year because they were considered predators.
