Wisconsin wildlife photos captured on trail cameras by DNR software

Thousands of trail cameras sit in Wisconsin’s woods, plains, and grasslands, silently waiting to snap a photo of a passing animal, a curious bobcat, or a group of galloping otters.

Millions of these photos have been compiled for all to see thanks Wisconsin snapshot Program established by the state Department of Natural Resources.

Many are blurry or only show an ear or tail at the edge of the frame. But others reveal hilarious, anxious, and heart-wrenching scenes—moments rarely seen by humans.

The project dedicated fans, and photos from the site were widely shared on Twitter and Facebook afterwards The New York Times recently covered the project (which has been regularly covered by Journal Sentinel columnist Paul A. Smith).
