UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The state D-N-R is looking for volunteers to help find wolves and other carnivores this winter. The state has been monitoring the animals since 1995. Last year about 150 volunteers surveyed about 8,000miles of roads. The volunteers look for tracks as they drive slowly on isolated roads. They also use snowmobiles, cross-country skis, and snow-shoes.

The new volunteers will need to attend tracking and wolf-ecology classes.

More information is available at the D-N-R's Web site, accessible at Wisconsin-Dot-Gov.
