The group Howling for Wolves is renewing their call to ban snares in Minnesota, an issue that resurfaced this month after a wolf was seen near Duluth with one wrapped around its muzzle. 

Although it's illegal to snare wolves, is is legal to snare coyotes, but opponents say dogs, songbirds and even moose and deer are killed or maimed by them.
