Wolves On the Rise in Wisconsin

by | Aug 12, 2004

I am pleased to learn that gray wolves have made a substantial comeback in northern and even central Wisconsin. They were not reintorduced to the area. They came back on their own. I suppose this says as much about the wolf as it does about rural Wisconsin. Either way, you’ve got to love that kind of tenacity and resilience. The wolf has inhabited this territory for 10,000 years (since the ice melted), and from out of nowhere, they are suddenly faced in 1830 with a bunch of European farmers who show up and start shooting. Such troubled times the noble wolf endures.
