“Stop Wolf Hunts” Feb. 12, 2015 Knowing that there are people who are strongly against wolf hunting there are many blogs and articles out there. The No Wolf Haters blog says “the U.S. Congressional Representative from Wisconsin, believes that we should slaughter our reintroduced gray wolves, instead of working for peaceful co-existence with ranchers for non lethal wolf controls.” All this is saying is that they want to find a easier way to remove some of the wolves out of the more populated place for hunting. Bump, Joseph. "Bear-Baiting May Exacerbate Wolf-Hunting Dog Conflict." 17 Apr. 2012. Joseph Bump ran some tests showing that bear baiting can make Wolf Hunting dog conflict worse.

There are many ways to fight the wolf and hunting dog situation. Some say they need to regulate the bear baiting and hunting with dogs. The Wisconsin DNR announced “ we are going to reduce the statewide population of wolves by half, from approximately 700 to 350.” This is going to reduce the population of wolves by half, which will then bring down the casualties for dogs. Reducing the wolf population would save money for the state because “the state pays 2,500 dollars per hunting dog killed by wolf” says the Wisconsin DNR.

More live stock have been effected by the growing wolf population. Adrian Wydeven said, “I think besides the increase in the number of farms where we’re seeing problems, the number of dogs being attacked is really telling. It’s getting much higher than what we used to see.” He also said that 2010 brought the first case of a bird hunting dog being killed by wolves. From wolf attacks the state paid more than 61,000 dollars for the dogs and another 114,000 dollars on farms for loss of cattle. Waydeven also said “wolf problems probably are increasing because wolves are moving into new areas and because state officials have few options to kill wolves.” "SEVEN WOLVES ILLEGALLY KILLED DURING THE 2011 WISCONSIN GUN DEER SEASON."
