MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin wildlife officials, the state trappers association and the U.S. Department of Agriculture are set to offer a series of wolf-trapping workshops this fall.

The workshops are set for Sept. 13 in Iron River, Sept. 20 in Grantsburg, Sept. 27 in Madison, Oct. 4 in Milladore and Oct. 11 in Rhinelander.

Each workshop will cover the basic wolf season framework, wolf ecology, trapper ethics and hands-on trap-setting lessons. The cost is $15. People with a 2014-15 wolf harvest permit will get first preference.

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources officials say the workshops won’t fulfill the basic trapper education requirements need to legally trap a Wisconsin wolf, however.
