July 16, 2019: Wolf Patrol Reports From WDNR Wolf Caution Area in Forest County…

Today while patrolling a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) Wolf Caution Area, Wolf Patrol witnessed a young gray wolf leaving the area where a bear hound was killed just three days ago.

The conflux of gray wolves and bear hunters baiting and training dogs to chase bears in our national forest leads to an estimated 19 deadly conflicts between wolves and hounds annually. Despite the awareness of wolves in bear hunters area of operation, Wolf Patrol does not expect to see an end to bear baiting and hound training in these Wolf Caution Areas.

Throughout Wisconsin’s two-month Summer bear hound training season, Wolf Patrol will be monitoring, documenting and reporting on continued bear hunting activity in WDNR designated Wolf Caution Areas.

If you agree that it’s time to reign in unregulated bear hunters on our national forests, please send an email to forest officials today at:
