DETROIT LAKES, Minn. -- Two trumpeter swans were found shot to death near Detroit Lakes recently, and officials with the state Department of Natural Resources are asking for the public’s help in finding out why.
The incident occurred Nov. 17, the last day of deer hunting in Minnesota.
The swans were found east of Detroit Lakes between Rock and Rice lakes, north of Cotton Lake.
Minnesota hunters’ success during the first nine days of Minnesota’s firearms deer season was down compared to last year, especially in the northeastern part of the state. The hunt ends today in Northeastern Minnesota.
The Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa stocked 294 fingerling lake sturgeon in the St. Louis River on Monday as part of a continuing effort to re-establish the species where it once occurred naturally.

The allure of shooting or trapping a wolf in Minnesota may be declining.
Applications for Minnesota’s wolf hunting and trapping licenses dropped by almost half this year, said Dan Stark, large carnivore specialist for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
