Wolf Attacks WI Hunter
can you site a source for the last wolf attack of a human in the state of Wisconsin?(and wiki is not a source) I am not a tree hugger by any means and I live within 10 miles of 3 documented packs (Black River Forest Pack, North Post Fort Mccoy Pack and South Post Fort McCoy Pack) and spend a lot of time out in the woods and have seen wolves on a number of occasions and have never felt threatened. I think there is alot of scapegoating and fear mongering going on when it comes to wolves. They do have a place in the scheme of things and might need a little more regulating in some areas. But to think that a wolf is going to eat your baby or snatch your child while playing in the yard is crazy. Most issues with wolves come from either dogs entering there territory and the wolves protecting their territory or from humans thinking it is cute to feed them. A few years ago, the entire Tomah pack had to be destroyed because someone thought it would be fun to feed them and they became a nuisance. I think that it all comes down to if you are that afraid of the wolf, then stay out of the woods or carry a side arm and protect yourself if you feel threatened. Just my 2 cents.
The DNR never gives an accurate count. There are over 1000 wolves plus a rising number of coy-wolves in WI. Deer numbers are in the toilet due to the predator load and DNR mismanagement. These wolves will spread out and conflict with humans will surely rise. They will decimate the deer herd in many areas worse than today, then move south to find more. They will eat more farm animals and kill more dogs. A human, likely child, death will occur, count on it.
Wolves don't fit in WI in such numbers anymore, not if we want huntable populations of game animals. Bringing them back was stupid. The real answer at this point since political activist judges stopped the hunt?
Yep, human race survived. But if a wolf kills your kid you may have a different outlook.
