A Jackson County man shot a 75 pound male gray wolf in the Upper Peninsula near Baraga County.
A man from Rives Junction in Jackson County was the first to report a harvested wolf as Michigan's controversial first wolf hunt opened today. The man, who declined to give his name due to "death threats" he said he's received in the past from hunt opponents, shot a 75-pound, male gray wolf just after dawn in the Baraga Plains area of Baraga County.
