DNR survey says higher tolerance for wolves

Poll Pic S937In the Sept. 6 issue of Wisconsin Outdoor News, editor Dean Bortz writes:

Wausau, Wis. — Pressured by an ever-growing number of wolf advocates wishing to increase the state’s population goal to at least 500 animals this fall, the DNR now has in its mitts the very data the agency could use to justify that kind of move.

The results of a DNR-mailed survey released early last week show that – in several respects – state citizens support having a higher number of wolves on the landscape than exist right now – even those living in what’s considered wolf country, or wolf range, as it’s referred to in the survey.

At the same time, sportsmen, farmers, county board members from northern Wisconsin, and any other stakeholder group that has been tracking Wisconsin wolf management, have been telling the DNR that the state’s wolf population goal must remain at its current level – 350 – even as the DNR rewrites its wolf plan this fall.
