“In one of its strongest acts of science in recent years, in 2014 the DNR issued the results of a public attitudes survey on wolves.
Among survey respondents in wolf range, 53% wanted wolf numbers maintained at current levels or increased in their county of residence, while 18% wanted wolves decreased and 15% wanted them eliminated.
Outside of wolf range, 56% wanted wolf numbers maintained or increased statewide.
At the time the survey was administered, Wisconsin had a minimum of 660 wolves, according to the DNR.
When the time returns for state management of wolves, the DNR owes it to all citizens of the state — wolf lovers and haters alike — to base its plan on the best available science.” click HERE to read full article from Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
