MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A group leading the opposition to wolf hunting and trapping in Minnesota will have a special presence at Target Center when the Minnesota Timberwolves host the Orlando Magic in their home opener.

Howling for Wolves has been designated the Timberwolves' "nonprofit of the game" for Wednesday night's matchup. The group's supporters will sit in special sections, and a 30-second public service announcement will encourage fans to visit the group's booth and sign a petition to stop the upcoming wolf season, which begins Nov. 9.

It costs $2,000 to get designated a Timberwolves nonprofit of the game. Benefits include 100 tickets. Timberwolves spokesman Brad Ruiter (RY'-ter) says a wide variety of groups have signed up to do it over the years, and it does not constitute a team endorsement of their views.
