Wolf Population Down 19 Percent In Wisconsin

by

MADISON, WI (KDAL) - The preliminary late winter wolf count in Wisconsin shows a 19 percent decline in the population compared to last year.  The Department of Natural Resources survey shows a minimum of 658 to 687 wolves across the state while in 2013 the count was 809 to 834.  While the numbers are down, DNR large carnivore specialist David McFarland says the wolf population is still nearly double the current goal of 350 and over six times the federal delisting goal of 100 wolves for Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  The data will be used in determining the goals for wolf quotas during the next hunt.
