Background: First week of deer observation survey brings in more than 800 reports

MADISON – The first week of Operation Deer Watch, a program that asks citizens to report deer observations during the months of August and September, produced 818 observation reports, filed by 420 individuals, according to Department of Natural Resources wildlife biologists monitoring the program.

“This is a great response for the first week of a new program,” said Tom Hauge, director of the DNR Bureau of Wildlife Management. “We welcome the extra eyes in the woods and appreciate the intense interest folks have in their natural resources and especially in the wildlife around them.”

Reports have come in from all corners of the state,” said Brian Dhuey, DNR research scientist, “we've received reports from 111 of our 139 DMUs (deer management units). DMU 77M Milwaukee, and parts of Ozaukee, Washington, Waukesha, Sheboygan, Racine, Kenosha and Manitowoc counties) has the most reports at 45, followed by DMU 64 (parts of Manitowoc, Calumet, Brown and Outagamie counties) with 29 reports.”

More than 3,400 subscribe to wolf caution area alert service

MADISON – More than 3,400 dog trainers, pet owners and others interested in keeping track of recent wolf activity have signed up for an e-mail or wireless service that sends out an alert when wolves attack hunting dogs or pets in Wisconsin.

Records show 3,462 subscribers now receive e-mail alerts of new caution areas and recent wolf depredations through GovDelivery, an e-mail notification service provided by the Department of Natural Resources.

Sign up is simple and only takes a few minutes. Use the search function on the DNR website to search for “dog depredation by wolves” and follow the simple instructions for subscribing to the alerts. It is possible to unsubscribe at anytime.

The alert will be sent to a subscriber's e-mail and/or wireless addresses of choice and will include a link to details of 2010 depredations and a caution map based on the location of any attacks.

Alerts on other topics are also available through the GovDelivery feature. At the DNR home page select “Subscribe to DNR Updates” and select the topics you want to follow.

Caution areas

“When wolves attack dogs in hunting or training situations, the DNR creates ‘wolf caution areas' to warn hunters that a specific pack has attacked a dog or group of dogs,” explains Adrian Wydeven, DNR biologist and wolf expert. “We encourage bear hunters to exercise greater caution if they plan to train hounds or hunt bear with hounds near any caution area, especially if they are near an actual kill site and for pet owners near a kill site to keep close tabs on their pets.”

Details of wolf attacks on dogs and caution area maps are available on the DNR website along with additional wolf information and suggestions for avoiding unwanted contact with wolves.

Since Jan. 1, 2010 wolves have killed 12 and injured seven dogs. Eight of the fatal attacks have been on trailing hounds since opening of the bear trailing hound training season on July 1.
