MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin wolf hunters took six more animals than they were supposed to.

The DNR said Thursday that 257 wolves were shot and trapped during the state's second wolf hunt that started October 15th and ended last Monday. The harvest was six above the quota of 251.  

A zone in northwest Wisconsin had 75 wolves harvested -- four more above its quota. That zone was the only one open for a month-and-a-half, after 5 others rapidly reached their quotas in the first three weeks of the wolf season.  

The hunt was scheduled to run through the end of February. But for the second straight year, the season ended on December 23rd when the quotas were reached.  

Last year, hunters took one additional wolf beyond the inaugural quota of 116.
