A group of 7 sheep near Wisconsin Rapids were killed by a pack of wolves last week. That was confirmed by DNR large carnivore specialist David McFarland Tuesday, who said the attack on the sheep doesn’t represent any new threat to the area or danger to people. McFarland says wolves don’t often attack sheep, and he said they rarely kill so many at one time. Wood County has had wolf packs for some time, but McFarland says he can’t say for sure how many packs are in the area. The DNR estimates there are as many as 890 wolves in Wisconsin, well above the DNR’s target goal of 350.
