MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The state Department of Natural Resources has named a new carnivore manager.
David MacFarland has worked as a wolf, bear and furbearer scientist for the agency since 2010. He helped design the regulatory framework for the state's first organized wolf hunt last fall.
He began an assignment as the DNR's carnivore staff specialist, a new position within the agency's Bureau of Wildlife Management April 7. He's now responsible for the bureau's wolf and bear management efforts as well as cougar response programs.
MacFarland holds a bachelor's degree in environmental science from Messiah College. He also has a master's degree in conservation biology and sustainable development and a doctorate in wildlife ecology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
He's stationed in Rhinelander.
