WI DNR Prowls For Wolf/Livestock Depredation; And For Wolf Poaching?

Now that the official wolf killing is over in Wisconsin, with 251 wolves 'harvested' with guns, traps, bait and packs of hounds - -why over at the DNR's wolf hunt information page is there this entry- -  

Anyone suspecting a wolf depredation in northern Wisconsin should call USDA-WS immediately at 1-800-228-1368 (in state) or 715-369-5221. In southern Wisconsin call 1-800-433-0663 (in state) or 920-324-4514.
- - without a similar request for information about wolves illegally killed by poachers (some of whom could also be the so-called '3S' hunters - - Shoot, Shovel and Shut up)?

The DNR knew of 20 such illegal wolf kills in 2012, its records showed, so if the goal is truly wolf and wildlife management - - and not mere wolf killing for the price of a $49 permit - - why isn't the DNR also asking the public for its assistance to stop wrongful wolf killing, too?

DNR no longer protect our resources .......they authorize and manage abuse and destruction of our water, minerals, wildlife and environment. This is their "Chamber of Commerce" mission as directed by Walker and carried out by Stepp. In the history of Wisconsin has any public agency been so heavily politicalized and so fast than the DNR?
