6 dogs attacked by wolves in northern WI in past 2 weeks

(WQOW) – One dog was killed, and five others were hurt by wolves since July 22 in northern Wisconsin.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, three dogs were injured in Douglas County, one was injured in both Burnett County and Oneida County, while a dog was killed in Sawyer County.

There have been 13 dog attacks in Wisconsin so far in 2018, with most of them coming since July. This is the time of year when bear hunters start running dogs through the woods for training, in preparation for bear hunting season.

U.S. Senator Ron Johnson took to Twitter to push his plans for more wolf control in Wisconsin and other states.
