The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is reminding dog owners to use caution in areas occupied by wolves. The DNR wants people who use their dogs to hunt to be especially careful.

Conflicts between hunting dogs and wolves are most common during the bear training and hunting season. 

This comes as several cases of dogs being injured or killed have been reported in different parts of the state. A list of those attacks can be found linked here

Anyone suspecting a wolf attack in northern Wisconsin should call USDA-WS immediately at 1-800-228-1368 (in state) or 715-369-5221. In southern Wisconsin call 1-800-433-0663 (in state) or 920-324-4514.
