On July 6th, Wildlife Services confirmed that wolves from the Atkins Lake pack killed two Plott hounds on private property in the Town of Crandon, Forest County. Both dogs were 5 years of age – one male and one female. This pack consisted of seven wolves last winter.
Hunters and dog trainers should be aware of the potential conflict and should exercise caution within this area. The caution area includes Highway 45 to the west, Highway 8 south, County S and Highway 32 on the east, and Yellow Birch Road and Old Railroad Grade on the north.
Find more information, including a map, on the DNR’s gray wolf website.
We will continue to provide email alerts for both livestock and safety concerns in a timely fashion, along with our alerts for dog depredations.
