DNR releases plan for wolf huntWisconsin Outdoors
Hunters will be allowed to take 201 animals, with the number of hunters limited to 10 times the quota. In other words, Wisconsin will license 2,010 hunters for the season.
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has released its plan for this fall’s wolf hunt.
Hunters will be allowed to take 201 animals, with the number of hunters limited to 10 times the quota. That means Wisconsin will license 2,010 hunters for the season.
Ecologists said they weren’t comfortable with a higher quota for this, the hunt’s first year.
The state will be divided into six zones, with quotas larger in the north where there are more wolves living.
Wisconsin’s Chippewa tribes can reserve up to half the total quota for their members in the ceded territory. That’s basically the northern one-third of the state. The Natural Resources Board will discuss the plan two weeks from today.
Viral disease spreading among dogs
Wisconsin veterinarians are reporting Parvo is spreading fast around the state this year. Parvo is a viral disease which makes dogs vomit and suffer with diarrhea.
At least 30 dogs have died for it in the past few weeks.
Vets say the chances for a dog to contract the highly contagious disease from other dogs increases dramatically during the warm weather months. They strongly urge dog owners to buy the 15-dollar preventative vaccination.
