The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says it is investigating a picture posted on social media depicting a wolf attack on a horse.  That posting has stirred up the debate about wolves in the Northland. 

The D-N-R is trying to find out if and when the attack happened and whether the wolf was really killed as the result.  The photo posted this week on Facebook has been shared more than five-thousand times.  Killing the wolf would be illegal unless human health and safety is at risk.
