WI DNR Says 15 Of 234 Wolf Kills Aided By Dogs

Those numbers - - 234 total, of which 15 were aided by dogs - - represent wolves registered with the DNR in the current hunting season as of Dec. 19th, the agency said today in response to my email inquiry.

Wisconsin is the only US state to sanction the use of dogs in wolf hunting; a challenge to that part of state law by humane societies is pending in state appellate court.

The current wolf hunting season is ongoing in one NW Wisconsin zone. Dogs were first allowed on Dec. 2.

The allowable kill this season statewide is 251, up from 117 last year.
