Wolves are not planted, they are "relocated" for what every greater good that they feel nessecasry. That is the language they use, and carry out. No need to put down a problem wolf, move it.

ohioguy pretty much summed it up, he just left out the cougars. My neighbor said that he overheard a guy in a bar one night talking about how his brother in-law's former roomate at USC saw the DNR put them there. Must have been a foggy night...

it all started back in the day when red tailed hawks got introduced to control feral cats, which farmers had introduced to control mice, which came over on THE boat. then as each subsequent introduction got out of control, another level of predator had to be added. however, the turkeys had done a better job killing mice than hawks, and soon when we had a shortage of mice and too many turkeys, which moved on to grouse eggs and baby bunnies, which upset many 'o hunter. so the snakes were introduced to control the turkeys. but the snakes quickly migrated to the burbs where mice and escaped hamsters were still plentyful, so wolves had to be introduced to control the turkeys. there are actually some DNR guys (who were also part of the 9/11 covert action) researching yeti in Tibet right now, in an effort to sort out the wolf mess, because the wolfman has been pursued heavily by the paparazzi recently, and has gone into hiding. it all makes perfect sense if you just really get down to the facts.

ryan, wardens are schooled in law enforcement, they are not biologists....you want info on laws, talk to the wardens, otherwise, try a wildlife biologist....you are barking up the wrong tree asking a warden.

Ryan29, I would have to disagree with you on that one. Wolves being brought into the state by the DNR is one of the biggest misconceptions of the public out there. It's just about as big as the DNR relocating rattle snakes to reduce the turkey population. Wolves started to migrate back into northern WI from the populations in MN and since wolves are federally listed, the DNR couldn't do anything about it. When they started to become more prevalent, biologists started tranquilizing them and putting radio collars on them to track their movements. As for the wolves in the marsh... I doubt they were planted there...

"This is old news, there has never been any wolf planting or stocking in Wisconsin."

I would really have to totally disagree with this statement. There have in fact been many wolf plantings in WI. That's how they got radio collared and the population started to grow again. They were taken from other states, collared, and then "planted" into the forests. I'm sure a few have migrated from other spots, but the core of the population has indeed been put here by the state DNR. Pretty soon you will be telling us that even though WI hasn't had a wild elk population in decades, that they all just magically showed up around Clam lake as well and just decided to put collars on so the DNR could track them.

And as far as wolves in the Sheboygan Marsh, were they planted? Who knows, I would say the warden "not being able to comment" would be a good indicator as to the real answer. If they weren't, why not just deny deny deny like they have done with cougars and other predators around the state? Have the wolves migrated? quite possibly. the average person will never know. I'm not sticking up for the DNR, or anyone else here, just an opinion. I personally have seen some wolf tracks while hunting for deer or birds around Sheboygan County. They have to go where the food is, and with everyone complaining about the pop. I just don't see why they would intentionally throw them into the mix around here at this point in time.

goods, "I know first hand there are wolves in sheboygan county, saw with my own eyes hunting coyotes. with dogs. were they came from. don't know. still see tracks in the snow once in a while."

Yeah, so what. Wolves wondering across Wisconsin have been killed in Indianna and Missouri ... does that mean that the Wisconsin DNR is stocking wolves out of state? Big Smile Young wolves wonder around, it is what they do ... it is how they came to Wisconsin. This is old news, there has never been any wolf planting or stocking in Wisconsin.

Until the Feds delist Wisconsin wolves, the DNR cannot reduce the wolf population, period. And there will never be a wolf hunting season until some state legislator passes a law to create one. No conspiracies, no black helecopters, no covert ops ... just slow boring politics. Big Smile Although the rumors do make more entertaining barstool conversation. Wink
