Subject:Bad news in Zax-Zim bog.

I seriously doubt that a few deer rib racks hanging in the bog has any affect on wolves'  behavior.  However, all you have to do is tell some people that it does and they will go ballistic without checking the facts. Sometimes government agencies don't do their homework either.

The birding community needs to sit down with the DNR and establish what is factual.  For example:
    1. How many complaints did the DNR receive?
    2. Are they valid?
    3. Is there any evidence that wolves have been at the deer ribs - tracks,                    teeth marks, etc?
    4. Wolves inhabit the area. What evidence is there that indicates the deer ribs
        change or affect wolf behavior?

It wouldn't hurt to have local officials and politicians involved. If the DNR's decision is going to have an adverse effect on the Zax-Zim birding festival, there should be some locals willing to get involved.

The DNR may want to have some control over where the deer ribs are placed.  That would help get them on our side.
