MADISON - Trappers who incidentally capture wolves are encouraged to contact Department of Natural Resources staff and participate in Wisconsin's wolf collaring and monitoring program.
Voluntary participation from Wisconsin's trappers is an important part of the department's work with many stakeholders and partners to monitor the state's wolf population.
In the event of an incidental wolf capture, DNR staff will work closely with the participating trappers to determine if the wolf is a good candidate for our monitoring program. Interested trappers can contact Nate Libal, DNR wildlife biologist, by calling 715-401-1764.
