One fatality among WI hounds newly-thrown to wolves

The Wisconsin DNR disclosed by email today that more hounds have been released into violent encounters with wolves - - some hunters let their dogs run off leash during training for the upcoming bear hunting season - -  and as noted often and lamentably on this blog, dogs are paying a heavy price.

One hound killed this weekend was a Walker hound, similar to this one; 
the owner is eligible for a $2,500 reimbursement by the DNR through an only-in-Wisconsin program.
