Wisconsin’s ‘official’ wolf population closing in on 1,000 animals

From the Wisconsin State Farmer:

MADISON – The gray wolf (Canis lupus), also known at the timber wolf, has been a source of controversy and conflict from the time settlers first brought domestic animals to Wisconsin. 

And that conflict has exacerbated in recent years as the state’s wolf population continues to climb.

Monitoring efforts, conducted from Dec. 2016 through mid-April 2017 primarily by volunteers under the supervision of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, detected an overwinter minimum wolf count of 925-956 and 232 packs.
