The hounding hunters won't listen, and why should they, since the Wisconsin DNR will pay them $2,500 for their loss. When will they all ever learn? Cruelty is cruelty, and rotten public policy is rotten public policy - - proven in Monday's email alert from the agency:
Bear Hound killed in Price CountyOn August 17, Wildlife Services confirmed that wolves killed an 11 year old Black and Tan bear hound. The attack occurred in the Town of Emery, Price County. More information and a caution area map are available on the gray wolf webpage.
Hunters are reminded to use the caution area maps on the DNR website (dnr.wi.gov, keyword "wolf management") to help reduce conflicts during this year's bear dog training and hunting season.
