Wolves were exterminated in the area a century ago, and officials say this shows a breeding population now has returned.

[/align][/align][/align][/align][/align][/align][/align]Wildlife experts say there's evidence wolves are breeding in the northern Lower Peninsula, a century after their extermination.

The U.S. Agriculture Department and Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment said Tuesday they trapped a wolf pup last week in Cheboygan County.

It happened as workers tried to trap and place a radio collar on a wolf. A wolf pack was confirmed in the area earlier this year.

State biologist Jennifer Kleitch says it's the first evidence of wolf breeding in the Lower Peninsula since people exterminated the predators in the early 20th century.

State agency wildlife division chief Russ Mason says it shows wolves are recovering in their previous habitat and need to be managed. [/align][/align][/align][/align][/align]
