Minnesota wolf lawsuit tossed

Wolf activists contesting Minnesota's wolf hunting and trapping regulations were deemed by a state appeals court to lack standing to bring the lawsuit and the case was dismissed by the court.

The court decision noted "it is apparent that petitioners’ disagreement is with the legislature’s policy decision to permit wolf hunting. Such a disagreement does not present a controversy for judicial review of the rules that effectuate that legislative decision.

"In sum, petitioners do not assert that the wolf rules cause unique harm to their aesthetic interest in wolves or the unlawful use of public funds. Petitioners therefore lack standing to challenge the wolf rules in this court."
