Some fish have teeth designed to rasp away at the hard coral, feeding on the coral animal. Under the state’s plan, wolves were declared a trophy-game animal, which allowed for seasonal hunting and trapping, and a predator that could be shot on sight in unlimited numbers in more than 80 percent of the state.
