ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Court of Appeals on Wednesday said it will not stop the state’s upcoming wolf hunting and trapping seasons, denying a request for preliminary injunction filed by wolf supporters.

The injunction had been sought by the Center for Biological Diversity and Howling for Wolves, which claimed that the state Department of Natural Resources failed to follow administrative rules when developing details for the seasons, especially failing to take public comments on the seasons.

The ruling by a three judge panel means the first ever Minnesota wolf hunting season will start Nov. 3, with a trapping season starting Nov. 24. Up to 400 wolves can be killed under the state’s upcoming sport seasons
