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.

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.

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”).

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

There is something inherently wrong with Fish and Game in Wisconsin.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »
