Grey wolf sighting Big Cedar Lake Washington Country
5/31/15 @ 8:27 PM
Grey wolf was caught on camera on the East Side of Big Cedar Lake Washington County. It was confirmed in Jan by the DNR. I don't know how to post the link but go to youtube and search "Wolf by Big Cedar Lake" to view the video. Makes you think twice about ice fishing at night. You can clearly see it was a collared wolf. Story is on Washington County Insider facebook page. Just goggle washington county insider,up it, then scroll down to 5-31 posting on the right hand side for the story. In the last couple of weeks I've had yutes and red fox running all over in my back yard. I'm on the West Side of Cedar. Is this wolf pushing them my way?? Nature conservancy is in my backyard. www.facebook.com/pages/Washington-County-Insider/1487295938219369

Consider remote places like Isle Royal and Boundary Waters in northern Minn. Thes are historically well populated with wolves, yet each year thousands of backpackers and canoeists go on week long treks armed with little more than a pocket knife. Many of these people travel solo and it appears that this vulnerability does not attract the aggression of wolves either. Its the bears they have to guard against.

Point is they shouldn't be this far south. Didn't go to the link, (too hard to copy and paste) but if it was confirmed to be a wolf that's quite a big deal IMO. You always hear about people seeing wolves or bears being farther south than they should be but it's usually from an old guy walking out of the woods smelling like he's been there for weeks and has no photo or video proof.

After looking up where Washington county is in Wisconsin, it all makes perfect sense to me now. I live in North central Monroe county and we have three packs within a 10 mile radius of my home. I have heard them at night calling and have seen them in daylight only 3 times in six years. I spend a lot of time in the Black River State Forest and the adjoining Meadow Valley Wildlife area in Jackson, Juneau and Wood counties and have NEVER felt threatened. My thought is, if nature scares you, stay at home. No need to fear monger over these majestic animals. They are part of the ecosystem and deserve respect and should be observed at a very safe distance. I know some people in Jackson county carry sidearms when bear hunting (a few dogs have been killed by wolves while bear hunting) but that is because wolves are territorial by nature. Bottom line is that you have nothing to fear.
