Livestock Depredation Instant Alert
Similar to the hunting dog instant alert that has been available for years, the WI Farm Bureau, partnering with WI Wolf Facts, finally convinced the WI DNR to implement an Instant Livestock Depredation alert system. On the DNR main page, scroll down to the red envelope on the lower right=hand-side, click and follow the instructions. The email or text alert will provide real time information on coyote, wolf, and bear depredations and harassment as verified by USDA.

How many wolves inhabit Wisconsin? Currently the Wisconsin DNR estimates a minimum count of 232 packs that have 925 to 956 wolves living in our state. The count is up 6.8% over last year's minimum count. (Note: This is a minimum count and many believe the number is much higher.)
