The Wisconsin wildlife officials recently released a draft plan that will foresee the wolf population in Wisconsin will be at around 1,000; a plan change from 1999 that The Department of Natural Resources would keep the wild populations at 350 wolves. This plan has angered wildlife and animal rights advocates.
This draft plan has yet to receive a hearing. Officials say that if the population falls below 799 wolves, they will allow the statewide population to grow in size. But if the population grows more than 1,200 wolves, officials want the numbers to be reduced back to their target number: 1,000.
