In the April 26 issue of Michigan Outdoor News, Marty Kovarik writes:

Marquette, Mich. — Working as an agent for the state of Michigan, U.S. Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services personnel killed eight gray wolves in Ironwood between March 5 and April 5. The wolves belonged to two packs that had become habituated to people, and were being seen inside city limits at an increasing rate. The DNR deemed them a threat to human safety.

“This has been an ongoing issue over the past few years, and wolves were coming into residential areas,” Brian Roell, the DNR’s wolf specialist, told Michigan Outdoor News.

According to Roell, the department began receiving complaints in early January that people were seeing wolves inside the city limits. One report stated that a wolf was seen in a resident’s driveway.

“Deer were coming in to feed on bushes and at bird feeders, and the wolves were following their prey into town and also feeding on garbage,” Roell said. “In early March, the complaints picked up.”

Ironwood Daily Globe outdoor writer Ralph Ansami said the problem was particularly bad in some areas such as Sunset Road, where one resident would see wolves while walking his dog and others would see them within feet of their doors.

Baiting and feeding banned in Polk, Burnett, Washburn and Barron counties

MADISON – A ban on baiting and feeding white-tailed deer in Barron, Burnett, Polk and Washburn counties went into effect on May 10.

The Department of Natural Resources took the action, in accordance with existing state law, due to the discovery on private land in Washburn County of a wild white-tailed deer that tested positive for chronic wasting disease. Both state and federal veterinary laboratories confirmed the finding. Later DNA testing confirmed that the deer is from the area.

Barron, Burnett and Polk counties are within a 10-mile radius of the location of the Washburn County property on which this CWD-positive deer was found. State law requires that counties or portions of counties within a 10-mile radius of a game farm or free-ranging CWD-positive are included in the baiting and feeding prohibition. With the addition of these four counties, baiting and feeding of deer is banned in 32 Wisconsin counties.

“While we lament this news, we welcome the positive response we’ve heard from area deer hunters,” said DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp. “We held an informational meeting with local citizens and nearly 200 showed up and stayed for hours asking good questions of our wildlife, law enforcement and wildlife health staff. In the end, my executive assistant Scott Gunderson asked the crowd how they felt about an immediate baiting and feeding ban and it was overwhelmingly supported.”

No changes are planned for the 2012 deer hunting season rules in the affected counties other than the ban on baiting and feeding, said Tom Hauge, director of the DNR Bureau of Wildlife Management. Hunters will be asked to provide tissue samples from deer killed within a 10-mile radius of the CWD positive doe for further surveillance testing. Samples will also be collected from road kills and possibly taxidermists and meat processors. Details of the sampling and testing program will be shared widely in subsequent news releases and on the DNR websitekeyword CWD – as the details are finalized.

“Baiting and feeding of deer unnecessarily increases the risk of spreading CWD and other diseases,” Hauge said. “Animal health is important to preserving our great hunting tradition and is a foundation of tourism and vital to local businesses.”

Baiting and feeding increase risks of spreading communicable diseases, like CWD, by concentrating deer in one spot. Deer using one spot are more at risk for spreading a disease.

Individuals can still feed birds and small mammals provided the feeding devices are at a sufficient height or design to prevent access by deer and the feeding device is within 50 yards of a human dwelling. This ban does not affect the use of bait for hunting bear or training bear dogs.
