Opponents of Mich. Wolf hunt question data used to justify it

Opponents of Michigan’s upcoming wolf hunt say data used to justify the program are skewed by events at one cattle farm in Ontonagon County…According to the organization: 73% of the 78 wolf-livestock incidents in Area B of the designated wolf hunt zones involved cattle from Koski’s farm between 2010 and 2013. 80% of all livestock killed in Area B during that period were from Koski’s farm.  64% of all cattle killed by wolves in the Upper Peninsula since 2013 came from Koski’s farm…(Koski) has basically set up a smorgasbord for predators on his farm – leaving carcasses around, not putting up fencing…he’s basically putting out a welcome mat for predators of all kinds…
