LANSING, Michigan — At least five wolves have been killed during Michigan's wolf hunt in the Upper Peninsula.
The Department of Natural Resources updated the results Sunday morning. The wolf season started Friday and runs through December, unless 43 are killed before the end of the year.
MLive.com reports that a 14-year-old hunter killed an 80-pound male wolf in Mackinac County.
It's the first hunt in Michigan since the wolf was placed on the endangered species list nearly 40 years ago. A total of 1,200 people are licensed to participate with firearm, crossbow or bow and arrow.
The DNR estimates the state's wolf population at 658.
