Five hunting dogs have been killed by wolves in three separate incidents spread over three eastern U.P. counties last week. Two hounds were killed in Schoolcraft county, two in Delta county, and one Beagle in Chippewa County. This brings the total to 16 wolf attacks on dogs and livestock so far this year as reported by MLive.com.

The MI DNR maintains a map of Wolf-Dog depredation events on their web site. See it and suggestions to avoid such conflicts here.

Note most dogs killed were bear & rabbit hounds during training season.
