Natural Resources Board taking comments ahead of Monday meeting on wolf hunt | Science & Environment


The DNR estimates Wisconsin is home to at least 1,034 wolves in 256 packs, primarily across the northern third of the state and the Central Forest region, up from 815 in 2012.

Wisconsin last held a wolf hunt in 2014, but the law allows people to shoot wolves if there is an immediate threat to human safety or if wolves are attacking domestic animals on private land.

Dozens of people testified on both sides at the January meeting, and the board received more than 1,400 written comments on the proposed hunt.
