In this day and age, bear baiting is still happening! Please read

Special post from Rachel Tilseth, the founder of the Wolves of Douglas County Wisconsin
It's legal to bait bears in Wisconsin and chase them down with packs of free ranging dogs...
Bear hunters bait the bear, getting him used to sweat treats like Cheerios and donuts that are stuffed into a log. Watch the video made by a bear hunter on how to make a bear bait station here;

Bear baits are sold all over northern WI service stations. Bear baiting is a big business. Many hounding clubs have large Warehouses full of bear bait sweats kept in 50 gallon barrels.

These bear bait stations attract other wildlife such as wolves and are know to cause conflicts between bear hunting dogs and wolves. WODCW will be out and about in the north woods monitoring bear hounding. For how to help wolvesdouglasco@gmail.com
