Real world solutions to using non lethal wolf management for people and wild Carnavore.
I’ve been a volunteer for Wisconsin’s wolf recovery since 1998. There were only 66 wolf packs in the state at that time. Today there are roughly 232 wolf packs spread through the northern and central forests. Thankfully wolf and livestock conflicts are at a minimum, and there are many non lethal solutions available for livestock producers to employ. There are many factors involved, and employing them as soon ass possible is being proactive. There are several abatements available, such as; Foxlights a nighttime predator deterrent, flandry, and guard animals. These solutions need to be put in place before wolf depredation occurs to any livestock. Also producers need to burry any livestock so the carcasses don’t attract wolves.
One very important step to coexistence for people & gray wolves is to educate and advocate by helping & guiding those living in wolf country. The objective is to save the lives of Gray wolves and livestock. Whether we live in the city or urban areas, in or out of wolf range, it’s all about solving how we live alongside wolves! Wisconsin’s wild wolf is now living on the landscape and has been since the late 1970s. Wisconsin is fortunate to have gray wolves back in the forests. The Gray wolf is an essential part of the ecosystem. Let’s work together to save Gray wolves and livestock!
