DNR Wants Hunters to Report Incidental Wolf Trappings
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/13/2017
Trappers who incidentally capture wolves are encouraged to contact the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource and participate in the state's wolf collaring and monitoring program.
"Tracking collared wolves is a critical component of Wisconsin's wolf monitoring program," said Nathan Libal, DNR wildlife biologist. "Trappers can help improve the quality of Department of Natural Resources wolf population data by allowing us to collar
incidentally captured wolves before they are released."
Libal says voluntary participation from Wisconsin's trappers is an important part of the department's work with many stakeholders and partners to monitor the state's wolf population.
DNR staff will work closely with the participating trappers to determine if the wolf is a good candidate for our monitoring program.
Interested trappers can contact DNR wolf program staff by calling 715-401-1764.
