MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) - The head of the DNR got an earful on predators this week.
It was one of the secondary topics which came up when DNR Secretary Matt Frank went before legislative committees at the Capitol. Representative Amy Sue Vruwink told Frank that wolves have started to show up in her central Wisconsin district. She says hunters have reported wolves and other predators preying on the deer heard.
Secretary Frank noted that wolves are still primarily a federal responsibility. He said he hoped that research can provide the DNR, and hunters, with some answers.
One lawmaker said her husband was “watched” by two wolves while hunting this fall -- something she called “a little scary.”
