Remove wolves from Baraboo woods
My neighbor went ice fishing, and, after cleaning his catch, put the remains on my property near a game camera that he had mounted there with my permission. The next day, he had a picture of a wolf eating the fish remains.
I’ve lived five miles north of Baraboo for the past 38 years. I’ve seen and heard coyotes on my property many times, but this was the first wolf I know for sure was on the land.
This past summer, I saw very few squirrels and rabbits in the woods, ducks on the little pond, or turkeys, cranes and deer on the 40-acre grain field.
Our grandparents had the common sense to remove the wolves from the woods. Any resident of northern Wisconsin will tell you the wolves ruined the deer hunting opportunities there.
The Department of Natural Resources needs to remove the wolves from the Baraboo area so our woods will once again be filled with wildlife.
Shame on the people who placed the wolves in the Baraboo woods.
