Wolves impact Wisconsin's bear hunt
Oct. 26, 2016
MADISON, WI (WSAU) - State officials are calling Wisconsin’s recently wrapped bear hunting season one of the most successful in recent memory. Department of Natural Resources say hunters brought in 4,600 bears.
But it was also one of the most deadly seasons for hunting dogs.

A risk that needs to be taken if wolves are to be an accepted part of local fauna. I hardly wish to tell the bear hunters how to do their job (my own experience as a hunter is merely with rabbits, pheasants and squirrels), but I think it would be worth it to coat their dogs with body armour, or at least with spiked collars. Both should be useful against bears anyway, so what is there to lose?
I cannot see that wolves are in any way nobler in character than hyenas- Frederick Selous
