A concerned landowner contacted CO Frericks regarding a collared timber wolf that came into her yard and appeared to have little fear of humans. The landowner has lost dogs and livestock in the past to wolves.

Officer Schmidt assisted Officer Duncan with a wolf depredation complaint involving a domestic dog. Injured animal complaints were handled including a raccoon and an eagle. The officer also spent time at Camp Ripley for training.

An investigation was started with the USFWS on a wolf that was found dumped on the Nemadji River in Clear Creek Twp. Initial findings show that the animal may have been snared. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call TIP.
