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.
