Using dogs to hunt wolves? I'd like to see those dogs, and 'cruelty to animals' is a concern for the dogs, not the wolves.
I can see the wolves, now.... "Hey, look guys...here comes lunch!"
As for the notion of killing as many wolves or lions or bears as possible, I find that puzzling, especially in the state of Wisconsin. Mr. Leupold would be saddened to see his great message lost after so few years. Something tells me if wolves had been part of a balanced ecosystem during the time when he wrote The Sand County Almanac, it would have pleased him tremendously.
Just because we're the apex predator does that mean we have to eliminate the competition?
