Wolf Hunting Will Begin in Wisconsin

Some Wisconsin residents will be able hunt problem wolves as early as next week according to the state DNR.

This comes after wolves were removed from the federal endangered species list last month.

The DNR says landowners with wolves that have killed livestock will be able to get a permit to hunt the problem wolves by this Friday.

That same day people without a permit will also be allowed to shoot a wolf if it is attacking personal property.

Minnesota has also promised a brief wolf hunt, although nothing is set up yet.

Wolf Hunting Will Begin in Wisconsin

That's old news. This wolf's been beating the bushes for fresh game everywhere, including Wisconsin, for years.

Our dumb forefathers...They killed the wolves and drained the swamps (wetlands). It saved a lot of useful animals and made headway against malaria. Dummies....

One should not have to get a "permit" to hunt and kill wolves. They were nearly exterminated in this country for a number of reasons.

The folks advocating "re-introduction" are insane.

I’m Happy to hear the DNR has finally heard what folks are telling them regarding this issue. My husband and I were night ATV’ing on approved trails in the far north woods last summer, and we were attacked by a pack of wolves.
There is absolutely no question they have become a problem in some areas of Wisconsin.
We were two adults able to think quickly and get away without being injured thank goodness, but earlier that day we’d seen a mom and her three young children out ATV’ing on the very same trail, what if it had been them?? Just sayin, the wolves that came after us as we were going 20-30 mph that we managed to narrowly escape from, one of the wolves having smacked it’s head on the side of my ATV as I sped away, would have made a late night dinner out of a child.

Good news. Not really about hunting, unless you're a landowner with a wolf problem, in which case you get tags.

More important, if a wolf wants to eat your dog, you can shoot the wolf. Finally no need for a shovel. And if a wolf attacks you, quite unlikely today, you can shoot it without much hassle. Imagine that, if you're attacked by a wolf you can shoot it, what a world. The media would worry more about the dog.

Are they doing as much damage as the deer over population? How many confirmed livestock deaths have been validated. Domestic dogs run stock into fences and it has been blamed on Wolves. Animals die and coyotes and other vermin eat the body and it is counted as a wolf kill even thou no wolfs have been seen in the area for 40 years. In Oregon about 10 years ago a bunch of sheep ranches were passing around the same dead sheep (was in winter so they were basically frozen) to each other so the two dead sheep were counted 26 times - the 4 ranchers were paid $65.00 for the same dead sheep several times before someone took the carcasses and when the Fish and game compared pictures submitted by the ranchers and the two inspectors looked at the bodies they discovered the fraud.

Most folks advocating “re-introduction” are Bambi-ists. We’re talking the kind of people who think meat comes from a foam tray wrapped in cellophane from the grocery store. And those are the relatively sane ones. The *really* insane ones think MEAT IS MURDER!

Here is a link to the wolf distribution map put out by the Wisconsin DNR. To quote the DNR:

“In 2010, wolf depredation to livestock occurred on 47 farms. Total livestock depredation in 2010 included: 63 cattle killed (47 calves), 5 cattle injured, 6 sheep killed (4 lambs), 1 goat injured, and 6 farm deer killed. A total of 25 to 27 packs and 2 to 4 loners/dispersers were involved in depredation on livestock. The enclosed map shows locations of all depredations on livestock (injured or killed), and verified threats or harassment of livestock. For the purpose of depredation management, game farm deer are considered livestock. Non-livestock depredation include attacks on pets, and human safety situations with wolves.”

http://dnr.wi.gov/org/land/er/mammals/wolf/wolf_map.htm#map

I recall that the number of pets killed was considerably more than zero, but I cannot remember how many the DNR estimated.

While farmers have a vested interest in reporting wolf depredations, the DNR has a vested interest in minimizing them.

Certainly, deer cause damage as well, and farmers can be reimbursed for some deer damage.

Wolves and deer are both resources that need to be managed. Left to themselves, they cannot be depended on to stay at optimum levels for human purposes.

“Good news. Wolves are already causing considerable damage in northern Wisconsin.”..

Wolves have been doing damage for a long time.

Interestingly, and not too long ago, the feds killed a pack of wolves (nine in all but two were left to live) because the wolves lost their fear of humans. That was in the Necedah National Wildlife Refuge (Central Wisconsin, Juneau County). The two they left were more than likely the alpha male and female........Hence the start of another pack to replace the ones they killed. The problem can start all over again........
