    1. Why is this news? Wisconsin bear hunters lose 20 or so hounds a year due to territorial wolves defending BAiT and rendezvous sites. Wisconsin allows bear baiting for 141 days. These fake hunters put their dogs in harms way- and then get reimbursed with taxpayer dollars for 2500.00. Welfare for SLOB hunters. You neglected to inform your readers about these minor details.

    2. I’m an American, and I find this appalling. We are well enough into the millennium to have evolved passed this sort of ‘sport’. Shame.

    3. If hunting is considered a “sport,” then isn’t using a dog to do the hunter’s “dirty work” considered cheating?

      I don’t expect hunters to have respect for living beings because they kill wild animals, so I can’t necessarily expect them to place a high value on the welfare of domestic animals. Including those under their “possession” (I almost used the term “care”).

    4. Well Gary, I’m no American (thank god, I value my freedom), but your rhetoric is so old it has dinosaur shit on it. Wolves have as much place and right to life as humans do. I’m not sure what makes you think you’re superior to any other species of animal? That’s the kind of pathetic hunter mindset that has resulted in the extinction of far too many species of animal on both land and sea. The only real species requiring population control is you redneck (EDIT SEE TERMS OF SERVICE). Ya’ll need to be neutered so the rest of us don’t have to tolerate your backwoods mentality and complete disregard for animal welfare. You also forgot to add to your comment that while you may be one of the few hunters who feel bad for this dog, most hunters don’t give two (EDIT SEE TERMS OF SERVICE) about them. If they did they wouldn’t be so stupid as to use dogs to bait wild animals that are capable of killing them with one swipe. I wish I could understand your way of thinking but I haven’t been able to lower my IQ down to the level of a grape.

    5. The fact that some of these posts are obviously not written by Americans( I say this because they have no concept of puncuation, or reasonable grammer), is chilling. Along with all of the great things the internet has done for furthering our knowledge and insights into subjects that would have been overlooked or ignored in the old days. We have to deal with these low brow knuckleheads that think they have some level of undertanding, and can’t wait to tell any and everyone how wrong,stupid,selfish,etc……. they are. I miss the old days when if some dipstick said something ignorant or mean or rude, you could look him the eye, and then beat some sence into him. Oh yea, it truly is too bad about the dog. I hate to see any animal suffer and it looks like this hound probably did. Wolves no longer have a place in the wilds of Wisconsin or any other state with no “wild” refuge. They have no natural predetors in Wisconsin other than humans, I’ve heard stories of cougars being sighted, but, not in enough numbers to curb the wolf pack population. Not all endagered animals need to be saved. With that logic, lets start working on reengineering the DNA of Dinosaurs. Lets see how these crazy libs like being hunted by a T-Rex, well thata’s a little nuts. But, we actually could let them be hunted by the pack that killed this poor hunting pup, I really like that idea.

    6. Duh … You raised these hounds and taught them to harass dangerous wild animals – so you could have some fun – then you cry the blues and pretend to care about them when they get hurt of killed ? How stupid can you be ? YOU PUT THEM IN HARMS WAY

    7. I think if those ppl didn’t go huntin 4 wolves then the Hound Dog wouldn’t have gotten killed,sad,but true

    8. Okay Peta followers, do your homework! Not all hunting with hounds is cruelty and dog fighting has nothing to do with this OR hunting with hounds. Simple fact is wolves will kill dogs anywhere anytime they comne upon them. It is a predator hierarchy thing. If you have fox then you probly dont have coyote, if you have coyote you probly dont have wolves- in any numbers. Anyway, these dogs are being trained in an area known to be a rendevous area for resident wolf packs. Pups are out of the den but still too small to go with the pack hunting, so they are left with usually a babysitter wolf for protection. Big ol loudmouth hound comes snuffling along and is instantly dispatch to protect the pups- not just from the hound but from discovery. Nothing cruel about it, just nature. The animals hounds run kill them all the time. Even raccoons will drown a hound if they can get him in the water. But it is what a hound is bred for, it is their job. Just train somewhere that isnt on advisory for wolf area. Wolves have a right to live too.

      1. Hi I got a Plott Hound because she found us after being lost for some time. Now how do I train her for rescue work? All hounds dint need to hunt bear or bore as bread for. She found 2 deer that the humans could not fine so the meat did not go to waste. That is a good thing, We who eat deer meat all year depend on the fall hunt for our meat for the year. She loves to hunt and is good at catching mice. This is bred in her to hunt and I think she is not happy just playing with us and our other 4 dogs. Dogs need a job to be happy. The other 4 dogs do agility and range in age from 16 to 5 years old. I love my Plott and glad we have her. She is a love Bonnie

    9. Hounding dogs are very cruelty, why you can’t see that horrible, then you are crazy for allow it. No more hounding dogs. Ban all of it. I thought illegal fighting dogs in all states, Felony!!!
