A map, generated by researchers at University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, predicts the risk of grey wolf attacks on livestock in parts of Wisconsin located within 100 kilometers of known wolf packs. The highest-risk regions, shown in red, comprise just 10 percent of the area within wolf ranges and are concentrated in northwestern parts of the state and near Lake Superior. The ability to predict potential attacks will help target prevention and management efforts with the goal of reducing conflicts between people and wolves, says UW-Madison environmental studies professor Adrian Treves.
