Grey wolf sighting Big Cedar Lake Washington Country
There's been a few hit by cars in northwestern IL. Genetic testing showed they came from northern WI.
Young male wolves travel great distances looking to establish their own pack. They're probably getting more accustomed to living around people.
I'm sure there will be new areas where it is no longer safe to leave the pet dog out on a chain....but it never occurred to me to be afraid to go icefishing at night in areas with wolf packs. The next time I go night fishing in those areas it STILL won't occur to me.
