A timber wolf named Comet is seen at the Timber Wolf Preservation Society Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012 in Greendale, Wis. Federal officials removed Great Lakes wolves from the endangered species list in January. Given free rein to manage the species, Wisconsin and Minnesota lawmakers pushed aside the concerns of some environmentalists and established their first seasons allowing hunters to bait, shoot and trap wolves. The society opposes the hunts. (AP Photo/Carrie Antlfinger)
