Wisconsin Wolves Kill Hunting Dogs
By Dave Hurteau
From the Wisconsin Ag Connection:
July hasn't been a good month in parts of Wisconsin in terms of the number of hunting dogs being killed by wolves. The state's natural resources department has confirmed that three more dogs have been fatally attacked during the past week.
DNR Spokesperson Ed Culhane says two bear hunting dogs were being trained for the season when they were attacked near Neillsville in Clark County. One of those dogs died. Two other bear hunting dogs were killed in Oneida and in Burnett Counties last week.
