01/21/2003 "Endangered Species Check Off Money Used to Reimburse Bear Hunters For Dogs They Use to Kill Bears"

Alliance for Animals

(10/18/2002) In a program believed unique to Wisconsin, bear hunters receive financial compensation from the Endangered Resources Bureau of the Department of Natural Resources for the loss of hound dogs due to wolf predation while the dogs are hunting bears.

Last year, such cases outnumbered livestock depredation incidents.

Over 40,000 Wisconsin citizens purchase the Endangered Resources license plate featuring the timber wolf and many give annually to the state income tax checkoff designated to help protect endangered species.

Many may not realize their money is going to bear hunters as compensation for dog losses.

i guess the best solution is to support the USFS proposal to ban bear baiting and dog hunting in the National forest.i live in glidden wi and have hunted all my life but the last few years hunting has been changed to killing half tame animals over food.bears,coyotes,bobcats,cars and pulp trucks also kill bear dogs.for some reason the bear hunters feel this is part of their sport.only the big bad wolf
doesnt belong out there;according to bear hunters.
