Wolves killed 63 cattle, most of which were calves, worth a total of $113,586, according to a new report from the state Department of Natural Resources. Between 25 and 27 packs of wolves are believed to have carried out the killings along with a handful of lone wolves.

But people may be more dangerous to wolves than wolves are to cattle and dogs. Of wolves tracked by the DNR using radio collars last year, 62 percent of those that died were killed by human-related causes such as illegal hunting, getting run over or getting euthanized because wildlife officials determined they were becoming a threat to humans (under current regulations, being a threat to non-human life isn’t enough to permit legal hunting).

"But people may be more dangerous to wolves than wolves are to cattle and dogs"Idea  IMO, people are more dangerous to their own cattle and dogs, too.  You can click the "report" underlined and highlighted above to see Wisconsin Endangered Resources Report #140 Year End Summary Wolf Population Monitoring in Wisconsin in 2010 by the WDNR.
