Time to step up on wolf management

THE?STATE’S first wolf hunt last fall did nothing more than keep wolf numbers in check, so Wisconsin is still faced with severe overpopulation and all the problems that go with it.
There are a minimum of 809 to 834 wolves in the state, including 215 packs and 15 lone wolves. That’s almost identical to the previous year’s count of between 815 and 880 wolves — prior to the first hunt.
All known wolf mortalities in 2012 included 117 from hunting and trapping, 76 from depredation control, 24 from vehicle collisions, 21 from illegal kills, and five from unknown causes.

I believe it was Ted Williams that said some people hate wolves because the wolves are better hunters.
There must be some deep feelings of insecurity that drives folks to such irrational hatred of wolves.
