In the Woods: What Halfpenny Sees
Earlier this week, we brought you a story about the state’s volunteer carnivore tracking program. Every winter, over a hundred people volunteer to help track wolves for the Wisconsin DNR.
Today we’ll hear more from Jim Halfpenny. He says he can track anything, even a fish, but he specializes in tracking rare mammals...like wolves or grizzly bears, depending on location. Halfpenny lives in Montana, but every winter he visits Wisconsin to teach a workshop on animal tracking and wolf ecology.
