Wolves in Wisconsin: Learning to Live with a Large Carnivore
Why should wolves have a place in Wisconsin? How is the wolf population managed to keep people and animals safe? Scott Walter of the state Department of Natural Resources will discuss this topic at 6:30 pm, Monday, Oct. 22, at the Mead Wildlife Center, S2148 County Highway S, Milladore. This presentation is part of the History Speaks in Your Town series presented by the Marathon County Historical Society and the Continuing Education office of UW-Marathon County.
People have strong feelings about keeping a wolf population in our state. Scott Walter will demystify wolves by discussing what we know about their history in Wisconsin, and will address contemporary biological, social, and policy issues relevant to their future here.
Wisconsin native Scott Walter is a large carnivore specialist for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. He holds a Ph.D. in Wildlife Ecology from UW-Madison, and lives with on a seven-generation family farm in Richland County.
