Please pay special attention to the comments by the Minnesota DNR Carnivore Specialist. Excellent perspective and very well said.

Department of Natural Resources officials say residents near wolves shouldn’t panic, but should take precautions. Dan Stark, the agency’s specialist for large carnivores, said people should feed pets inside and fence yards.

“Wolves live in a lot of different places in northern Minnesota, and don’t cause problems, and people rarely have interactions with them,” Stark said. “It is just something to be aware of, and in some cases cautious about it.”
