These are the videos Wisconsin’s politicians and trophy hunters are desperately trying to keep Wolf Patrol from sharing with the public. The videos presented here were not filmed by Wolf Patrol, but by the hound hunters themselves and shared on social media. Wolf Patrol will be releasing one such video every day, to illustrate the systematic abuse of wildlife disguised as hunting in Wisconsin.
This is what legalized hunting with dogs looks like in Wisconsin, and if you don’t like it, please share your displeasure by calling the Wisconsin elected officials listed below who are calling for an end to Wolf Patrol’s monitoring of controversial hunting practices in Wisconsin. Let them know you stand with public trust wildlife and disagree with their use of public office to push their pro-trophy hunting agenda.
Senator Tom Tiffany (608) 266-2509

Representative Romaine Quinn (608) 266-2519
Here is what these five elected officials are alleging against Wolf Patrol:
LEGISLATORS CALL ON CORONADO TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE.
“MADISON, Wis. – Today, several state legislators call on environmental terrorist and convicted felon Rod Coronado to be held responsible for his most recent aggressive confrontations with hunters. They released this statement: Rod Coronado has a past riddled with violent and inappropriate behavior. Most notably he admitted to firebombing a research building at Michigan State University in the 1990s – destroying more than three decades of research and causing millions of dollars in damage. He’s been involved in sinking whaling ships, breaking into facilities to impair important research, and was charged with half a dozen Animal Liberation Front attacks. It seems his disruptive path continues.
In 2013, Coronado turned his focus to denying the constitutional rights of hunters and outdoor enthusiasts. He has been wreaking havoc in the Midwest ever since. The group Coronado leads, Wolf Patrol, has spent their time harassing individuals across northern Wisconsin exercising their constitutional right to hunt. A former member of the group has publicly claimed Coronado sexually assaulted her. We, as a legislature, stood with sportsmen across Wisconsin in condemning these types of aggressions by passing the Right to Hunt Act. Despite that fact, the Wolf Patrol has continued to disrupt legal hunting and agitate hunters. In late January, near Laona, Coronado and his crew once again had an aggressive confrontation with hunters.
It’s unfortunate that Coronado – and groups like HSUS who have an alleged culture of sexual harassment – purport to care so deeply about animal life but seem to disregard human life. We hope that Coronado and all involved in disrupting legal hunting are held responsible for their actions and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. We are calling on the DNR to not allow Coronado to participate in the winter wolf tracking and summer wolf howling surveys as part of the wolf tracking program. We also call on members of the environmental community to follow the lead of Wolves of Douglas County in denouncing Coronado and his actions. Let the repudiation of Mr. Coronado bind us as a community that will no longer allow the systematic abuse of human life.”
Wolf Patrol accepts full responsibility for our actions and welcomes the opportunity to address our citizen monitoring campaign on public lands in Wisconsin. But after four years operating in the state of Wisconsin, we have yet to be cited for violating any law, yet the hunters we monitor are frequently found in violation of Wisconsin liberal hunting regulations. If Wisconsin’s elected officials want to legislate away the rights promised to us by the Constitution of the United States in order to protect systematic animal abuse, then we welcome our day in court.
