Was that a wolf? PDF on International Wolf Center's website
To ensure a prompt response to wolf depredation and or nuisance complaints, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources asks you to call the "Report All Poaching" line (RAP). The RAP line is available 24 hrs. a day. Operators will collect your information and pass it on to local wildlife or law division staff that will make every effort to perform a timely investigation. If you know the Town, Range, and Section for your property please provide it to the operator so we can quickly locate your farm or home. The RAP number is available in the Michigan hunting and trapping guides and the fishing guides. The RAP number is also available along with other information about wildlife depredation at the Michigan DNR web site (www.michigan.gov/dnr).
