MADISON — The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says it found no evidence of fights between hunting dogs and wolves when the agency examined wolf carcasses this spring.

This past wolf hunting season was the first in which Wisconsin hunters were allowed to use dogs to pursue wolves.

Wolf advocates feared there would be many illegal fights between wolves and dogs. But the DNR says after examining the skinned carcasses of 27 of the 35 wolves killed by hunters using dogs, evaluation of any law violations was inconclusive.

The DNR's Dave McFarland tells Wisconsin Public Radio (http://bit.ly/1sueMuj ) that on one wolf with only a partly removed pelt, there were minor bite wounds from an undetermined species.

Rachel Tilseth of Wolves of Douglas County Wisconsin says she doesn't think the examinations were thorough.
