Data Of The Day: 198, $2,230, $441,651

What are those numbers?

The describe the results of a State of Wisconsin program that has paid $441,651 to bear hunters since 1985 as reimbursement for 198 hunting dogs killed by wolves during bear hunting or bear hunt training, according to DNR records.

The average payment per hunting dog killed is $2,230.56.

The maximum allowable payment per dog is $2,500.

Payments are allowed for bear hunting dogs killed by wolves in wolf caution areas publicized by the DNR.

The DNR program also pays for the loss of pet dogs and livestock killed by wolves.

Again, that DNR data is here.
