"Wolves Kill Two Forest County Hunting Dogs"

Post by Koa » Thu Jul 12, 2012 10:01 pm

Yet another incident between wolves and dogs (and the wolves yes, consumed the dogs) ... not surprised.
Crandon - The Wisconsin DNR's proposed wolf hunt plans to harvest more than 200 wolves this year.

It can't come soon enough for a Crandon family whose hunting dogs were killed and eaten by wolves last week.

Oh, that's bad. I'm glad they didn't share pictures. Well, it's bad when wolves get so close to developments that they kill and eat hunting dogs. Thanks for sharing, anyways!

Wolves are opportunistic feeders, so consuming a dog (while it may seem strange to us) matters little to them. Wolves are particularly defensive around domestic dogs as well, which can make way for tense encounters that can evolve into something "worse."

Agreed, I'm not surprised either. Not to say it's not sad, of course, but things like this are bound to happen when dogs, hunting dogs, enter a pack's territory. It is good that they set a boundary, hopefully we won't see an incident like this for a while. Thanks for sharing!
