Wolves in northern Wisconsin are hearing some competition this summer: digital recordings of other wolves howling, which wildlife managers hope will someday work to push problem wolves away from farms and other areas where they conflict with humans.

Five "howling boxes’’ have been deployed in forested areas of northern counties to see if the recorded howling will scare wolf packs into moving their rendezvous sites — the place where the pack keeps its pups and brings them food each day from nearby kills.

"If it works, we’d like to use it near farms and residential areas where wolf packs set up rendezvous sites too close to people,’’ Adrian Wydeven, wolf expert for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, told the News Tribune.

This idea came from Shaun EllisThumbs UpThumbs Up.  It proved to be successful when implemented by a Polish farmer and I believe in the Rockies.
