Diane Cain of Hixton will talk about her work with wolf advocacy at the Friends of the Black River April meeting. The meeting will be held Wednesday, April 13, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in The Hub at the Lunda Community Center. The meeting is free and open to the public.
Cain will cover wolf characteristics and habitat; the wolf population in Jackson County; the conflicts between wolves and farmers/ranchers and bear hunters using hounds; the politics and litigation concerning wolf conservation; cultural and spiritual importance of wolves to native populations; the myths and facts surrounding wolves; wolf mortality causes and wildlife extinction; human and wolf encounters; and how to distinguish between wolves and coyotes.
Since 2021, she’s represented Sierra Club WI on the Department of Natural Resources Wolf Harvest Committee concerning the fall 2021 wolf season quota. Her advocacy has taken her around the country speaking on behalf of wolves.
