DNR working on plan to allow dogs in future wolf hunts

by

MADISON (WSAU)  The Department of Natural Resources is working on a plan to keep dog owners who hunt wolves accountable. They're proposing new regulations that would limit the use of dogs in wolf hunts or taking precautions to be able to better identify a hunting dog's owner.

Using dogs for wolf hunting is temporarily suspended pending a lawsuit by the Wisconsin Federated Humane Societies and the National Wolfwatcher Coalition, among others. The groups say the current lack of regulation is a recipe for animal fights. They want dogs to only be allowed to track the wolves, not go after them physically.
