Pets harassed by wolves in town of Minocqua

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)-Wildlife Services has verified that wolves harassed two pet dogs in the town of Minocqua in Oneida County.

According to the report, two dogs were let outside and when they didn't return the owner used an all-terrain vehicle to search for them.

The pet owner eventually found and retrieved both dogs and then reported seeing wolves for the second time in a month.

Neighbors also reported seeing the wolves.

"Because of this, we recommend not letting pets out unsupervised and posting trail cameras to document the wolves," said Tanya Espinosa of the USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).

This is not the first report of confirmed wolf activity in Oneida County this year.

There were confirmed wolf depredations of captive deer on May 5, July 16, Aug. 20, and Aug. 27.

These were in the town of Cassian.

On Sept. 5 there was a confirmed wolf depredation of a hunting dog in the town of Lynne.
