Editors note: That brings the total number of known pet dogs killed or injured by wolves in 2016 to 48. As the season progresses we can most definitely expect more beloved pets to be killed more as wolves expand their pack sizes.

I will never again purchase a thing from you, you have so misrepresented the truth you are easily classified as liars. The “pets” you shed crocodile tears over are in fact bear hounds, and virtually every freaking one of them with but a few tiny exceptions, were killed or maimed while their grotesque owners were pursuing black bear with the aid of packs of these hounds, a practice well over 80% of Wisconsin land owners despise! Its especially grotesque to hear from the idiots who claim love of the savage hound dogs, animals which are routinely maimed and killed by… Read more »

Well as someone who hunts in northern Wisconsin I can clear this up for all of you who don’t have all the facts. First the dogs that have all been reported in the artical are bear hunting dogs NOT wolf hunting dogs. I have a cabin in northern Bayfield County and can attest to the fact the state has way to many wolves as I also hunt in many locations in the state. In the northern region of the state many household pets are killed each year also it’s just that during September and October during bear season bear dogs… Read more »

Hound dogs are fearless fighters. These hounds were outnumbered by the wolve pack. Send in a hound pack.

PETA? Really? Hey colonialgirl or more likely some dude dressed in drag, pull you head from between your cheeks and realizes what is going on. Not one dog listed was not of the hound variety. No poodles, labs, corgies have ever been mentioned. The only dogs that die are dogs sent to their deaths by wolf hunters who chose trackng type of dogs, duh………………. hounds?

Totally agreed with Mr Disgusted: if you send your HUNTING dogs to hunt a tougher dog (a wolf) this is what you might get….No sorry about the dogs either. So, not a real “moving” article like to change one mind and say: yes, let go to kill the wolves…..

These dogs are not pets! These poor dogs are hunting dogs sent to their deaths by their ***TOS VIOLATION*** ( IP ADDRESS 73.196.55.181 ) owners. And what are these dogs hunting? Wolves!

I am a hunter and there is no way in hell I would ever put my pet in harms way. What do you think could happen when you try to hunt a predator, you can become the prey.

The wolves need to attack the owners not he dogs (besides they are distant cousins).

You gotta be some kind of stupid liberal. Calling for wolf attacks on people ? I hope they(wolves) migrate down here to Iowa, so I can shoot every one I see.

“Pet dogs”? They are mostly hunting dogs and they were let loose by their handlers in known wolf hot spots under the guise that they were being trained for bear hunting . What the editor omits in his tear jerking relate is that every hunting do killed earns you a cool $1500. Not a bad way to get rid of “bad apples” and get paid for it.

$1500 is not enough to cover the cost of the dogs. Furthermore, the hunters treat and love their companions the same as you and I treat our pets. Something must be done to control the exploding wolf population.
