JACKSON — Hunters have killed 41 wolves so far during Wyoming's trophy wolf-hunting season.

As of the latest update posted by the state Wednesday, eleven more wolves can be taken before the season ends on Monday. Hunters have 24 hours to report kills.

Hunt supporter Maury Jones said that he's not surprised that hunters haven't filled the quota yet because wolves are difficult to shoot.

It's Wyoming's first wolf hunting season since the federal government reintroduced wolves to the Yellowstone ecosystem in the 1990s.

Besides the trophy kills, 23 wolves have been killed around Wyoming this year because they were considered predators.
