Livestock producers in the Upper Midwest remain mostly helpless protecting their animals from gray wolf attacks.

Miles Kuschel ranches in northeast Minnesota and says he talked to a producer from his area who recently lost a calf.

Earlier this month, a federal appeals court upheld the gray wolf’s listing on the Endangered Species Act list.

Kuschel tells Brownfield those who support the decision don’t recognize how dangerous these predators are to livestock in the Great Lakes region.
