MARQUETTE - Criminal charges are pending against hunters in three of at least six known incidents of wolf killings in the western Upper Peninsula since the beginning of firearm deer season.

Investigations are under way in two other incidents, while the sixth wolf was believed killed by other wolves, an official from the state Department of Natural Resources said.

"You think you're out there in the middle of nowhere, but there are a lot of clues out there," Lt. Tom Courchaine of the DNR's Crystal Falls office told The Mining Journal. "Especially during deer season, where there are a lot of eyes and ears out in the woods."

Wolves are listed on the federal endangered species list, and persons found guilty of killing them face up to 90 days in jail, a fee of up to $1,000 and a loss of hunting privileges. They must also pay $1,500 in restitution, Courchaine said.
