Dog Depredations Nicolet, First In 2011


Peshtigo Brook Pack- Oconto County
On August 2nd, Wildlife Services confirmed that wolves depredated a a bear hound while training on the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. The incident occurred on 7/29 or 8/1 in the Town of Armstrong, Oconto County. The depredation was due to the Peshtigo Brook Pack, which consisted of two adults last winter. This pack probably has pups and are using rendezvous sites. Wolves are highly defensive of both pups and rendezvous sites and both hunters and dog trainers should be aware of the potential conflict between wolves and their dogs in the caution area depicted in the map below. The caution area follows Highway 32 on the west, Highway 64 on the south, Parkway Road on the east, and County W to the north..
