MADISON, WI --( On August 23 2014, Wildlife Services confirmed that wolves killed a seven (7) year old Plott hound and injured three two (2) year old Plott hounds and a six (6) year old Plott hound during the same training incident.

The attack occurred in the Town of Fence, Florence County. Wisconsin Department Of Natural Resources has issued wolf caution area shown on the map below and is comprised of a four-mile buffer around the “depredation site”, aka dog kill site.

“The reintroduced wolves have no fear of man or dogs. We protested when the state introduced these wolves in Florence County, but did WDNR listen, no. Someone will be killed and then it will all be on the ‘save the wolf groups’ that insisted we live with these killers” said county resident Adler Barns.

A recent Wisconsin survey on wolves found rural wolf range residents were split on their willingness to have wolves living near them; 49% were not willing and 45% were willing.

Among those wolf range residents who grew up in a rural area , willingness to have wolves living nearby drops to 40% and the frequency of those who would prefer to not live by wolves increases to 55% . Two out of three people living on farms within wolf range were unwilling to live near wolves.

      You let just one of Golden Retriever’s get killed or injured by one of these packs……Wolf problem solved! Oh yeah…. WDNR wouldn’t have say in the matter!

    2. This same thing has happened in SC. Instead of extending the hunting season, letting us kill more per day, and maybe feed poor families, our all wise government spends millions to bring in wolves that cause more problems. It is only a matter of time before they start killing people. We have a government that wants to keep people dependent on them for EBT and such so they can get votes come election time. No one is interested in solving real problems.
