MADISON, Wis. (AP) - State wildlife officials are planning to release their latest wolf population estimates later this month.

The Department of Natural Resources plans to release the data during a public meeting at a Wausau hotel on June 16. Agency officials have declined to release the data any earlier.

The most recent estimates for the winter of 2014-2015 put the population between 746 and 771 wolves across the state.

Wisconsin held three wolf seasons before a federal judge placed Great Lakes Wolves back on the endangered species list in 2014.
