MN Appeals Court to Hear Wolf Hunt Lawsuit

April 2, 2013 Updated Apr 2, 2013 at 8:30 PM CST

St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) -The Minnesota Court of Appeals will hear a lawsuit Wednesday involving the Department of Natural Resources and the wolf hunt.

The group Howling for Wolves claims the DNR failed to obtain a public comment for the inaugural wolf hunting and trapping season.

Both Howling for Wolves and The Center for Biological Diversity filed suit last September.

The conservation groups sought a preliminary injunction to prevent the opening of hunting and trapping until a decision in the case had been made.

The court shot that injunction down.
