Official: 4 Dogs Killed In Reported UP Wolf Attacks

MUNISING, Mich. (AP) – An official says four hunting dogs have died after two separate reported wolf attacks in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Michigan Department of Natural Resources spokeswoman Debbie Munson-Badini tells that attacks were reported Monday and Wednesday in Schoolcraft and Delta counties.

Bill Thome, owner of Kenbuck Resort in Schoolcraft County, near where the dogs were killed, says there have been multiple wolf sightings this summer. Last weekend in Dickinson County, reports a wolf also killed a cow before a landowner killed the wolf.

The reported attacks come ahead of debate in Lansing about wolf hunting. The Michigan Legislature could move as early as next week to pass a pro-hunting law designed to make moot two statewide referendums in November that would stop state-sanctioned wolf hunts.
