Wolf Patrol’s Rod Coronado Appeal to Ban Bear Baiting in Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest

Wolf Patrol’s founder, Rod Coronado appeals to the public to send comments to the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, asking that bear-baiting be banned on our national forest. In Wisconsin, it is legal for bear hunters to construct an unlimited number of artificial feeding stations. At each of these, it is legal to dump at each restocking, up to ten gallons of fryer grease, sugary foods, bread and other foodstuffs, all for the purpose of conditioning bears to visit these sites when bear season opens in September. Bear-baiting in WI begins in May and ends in October. Where this video was shot, four bear hounds have been killed by wolves, who also become conditioned to recognize bear baits as a food source.
