From WXPR radio in Wisconsin:
One of the side effects of a legislative move to stop state enforcement of wolf management is a long-standing program to track wolves in the winter.
The volunteer citizens program began under the direction of former DNR staffer Adrian Wydeven.
The volunteers go into the woods and track wolves and other carnivores, helping the DNR to put together a database of animal populations. The proposed legislation ends all DNR supervision except to reimburse property owners who lost animals to wolves.
