A Wisconsin trapper releases a timber wolf face to face.
This Wisconsin trapper might be a bit braver than the average outdoorsman. This November, John Oens had his coyote trap lines out, but instead, a mistaken wolf wandered inside of it.
Watch him expertly release a wolf completely unharmed.
Wolves are currently protected in the state of Wisconsin, so the trapper had to carefully release the wolf.
The second camera of the GoPro gives an interesting take on the event. Using plywood to separate himself and the wolf is pretty genius. It appears to be a technique that simply works.
Good luck and be safe to all the trappers this winter. When in doubt, practice this man’s safety precaution and grab some plywood.
