They found that the neighboring states, with similar wolf and bear populations and similar numbers of bear-hunting permits issued per wolf, report dramatically different numbers of wolf attacks on hunting dogs. Wisconsin's relative risk of attack is two to seven times higher than Michigan's.

Bear baiting begins earlier in Wisconsin and lasts longer, the scientists note. "The longer you bait, the more opportunity you provide for wolves to discover and potentially defend bear-bait sites," says Bump. "Most hunters release their dogs at bait sites, and the longer the bait has been around, the more likely hunting dogs are to encounter territorial wolves who have found and are possibly defending the bait. So it appears that baiting is an important factor."

Wisconsin also compensates dog owners $2,500 per hunting dog killed by wolves. In fact, the Wisconsin DNR data show that compensation for wolf attacks on hounds costs the state more than it has spent for wolf attacks on any other category of domesticated animal, including calves, missing calves or cattle.

Michigan does not compensate dog owners for wolf attack

that's dairy country right there. and grass fed dairy cows are become a food item for wolves. the wolf doesn't know any better and it's going to cost the poor animal dearly. caucasian shepherd sales are climbing. these are small killings compared to what's coming.
they must be culled.

Put the cattle industry out of business and save Earth and Spirit by never eating beef! We can crush these immoral creeps, and end the cattle lobbying that fills up the pockets of unethical politicos! Wolves will no longer be murdered, buffalo and wild mustangs will have more land freed up to roam upon, Nature may even be recognized as being in charge of living beings again instead of stupid, greedy men.

Emyrs Merly = you don't read very well do you? The article stated " the Wisconsin DNR data show that compensation for wolf attacks on hounds costs the state more than it has spent for wolf attacks on any other category of domesticated animal, including calves, missing calves or cattle." It is outrageous that hounds are legal for hunting bear. And it is good that sales are going up for shepherd dogs so they can protect the livestock from the wolves. The state should be paying for the guard dogs not the hunting dogs that get killed.

The entire article just made my head explode. The whole scenario about compensating hunters for dogs killed by wolves while being used to bait bears is just unbelievable. I can see where this article is going. The way to end or diminish the killing of the dogs is to kill the wolves. These people are just despicable.

Recall the elected officials that are signing off on this. Fire all the officials at the Fish and Game department. I've had enough of animal cruelty and this rates up there as abuse and anyone who does this needs to be prosecuted.

Be careful speaking up in Wisconsin. They arrest people for holding a sheet of paper with the State Constitution printed on it in the State Capital. They arrest people for putting tape over their mouths while sitting silently in the legislative gallery. Uniformed officers have followed people to their houses after the person is present at a peaceful protest rally near the capital, just to intimidate them. They give out tickets and fines, the vast majority of which are later dropped BECAUSE NO LAWS WERE BROKEN but this interupts the citizens life showing up for court repeatedly or, of course you could plead guilty, pay the fine then have a record so that the next bogus charge is as a repeat offender.

The list of un Constitutional activities by Walker, and all the other Republican Kochsucking squad members would make any fascist or Nazi you name proud. His absolute promise of 250,000 private sector jobs over the 4 year term (what we were projected to get before his brilliant changes) is no longer mentioned. The unemployment rate would skyrocket except long term unemployed are not counted and thousands have left the state for jobs elsewhere so they are not unemployed in Wisconsin anymore. Also the hoops you have to jump through to get unemployment benefits are getting much more difficult and the benefits dropping so some will not bother to apply so they will also not count as unemployed.

Our supposed bad Gov. Doyle had us 11th in job creation in the nation Snotty has moved us all the way up to second to last. The media just reports exactly the Walker lies without the slightest challenge. Walker will begin making up job numbers prior to the next election as he did for the recall and the strategically sloppy vote counting in Republican strongholds released late when they know how many votes they need to win will happen again.

Money owns Walker and the entire state government has been converted to pay for play per the Koch brothers John Birch Society plan. Walker plans to be President and he just might do it if he can keep up the utter bullshit in his fund raiser speeches and he gets enough money. I used to think the voters would reject known crooks, liars, and corporate slaves with an awful record in office but we had Bush the Inferior for POTUS.

Good Luck America and Wisconsin (my home state) WE ARE GOING TO NEED IT AND LADIES, ENJOY THE MEDICALLY UNNECESSARY ULTRASOUNDS OUR SELF ACCREDITED MEDICAL DOCTORS IN THE LEGISLATURE WILL REQUIRE YOU TO PAY FOR IF YOU TRY TO GET AN ABORTION and the accompanying medically inaccurate lecture. This applies to women who's life is put at risk by the pregnancy and futile pregnancy where no living child will result.

sick sick humans! they thrill to kill! hope they all get slaughtered by mad dogs, traps and shoot each other. I am so sick of senseless animal slaughter ! our wild horses, our bison, our wild burros, coyotes, cougars, bears, otters, bobcats, fox, mink, rabbits, birds ,,, there is no end to their sick hearts and minds to kill even our unborn children are murdered for their lust and convenience. I am sick of this human race. Dear Jesus Hurry and Judge this wicked violent world of man.

To me, this is past any sense of decency or compassion. That damned so-called Governor should be thrown out of office and this horrible baiting business brought to an end. Anyone who would partake in something like that is a pig, a no-neck, and a barbarian of the worst kind In fact, sub-human. There seem to be a lot of those in this day and age--the type who gets a high from slaughter and torture of innocent animals. They don't have a chance, and they're there in the first place to keep a balance in nature. These Nazi types do all they can to unbalance it. May the powers that be CURSE the ground they walk upon, and may they get theirs in the end. Hateful scum of the earth.

Of course, what good does it do to write stuff like this. The perpetrators never see it, and the State of Wisconsin apparently thinks it's cool.

This is insane. I am so tired of hearing about the constant slaughtering of animals like this. This Governor needs to be gone. Is this where your tax dollars are going??? I would be calling and knocking on his door if this was my Governor to voice my opinion on this. I'm sure that the tax dollars could be used somewhere else that would benefit more of the people.

Another shameful and disgusting attempt to kill off wolves. Can the State of Wisconsin really afford $15,000,000 on this program? Surely there are better uses for this money!
