Committee To Hold Hearing On Wolf Hunt
Bill Would Establish Wolf Hunting, Trapping Season

MADISON, Wis. — The public will get a chance this week to sound off on a Republican bill that would establish a wolf hunt in Wisconsin.

Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin wolves came off the federal endangered species list last year. The change means the states are free to manage their wolves as they see fit.

The bill would establish a wolf hunting and trapping season that would run from mid-October through the end of February. The Department of Natural Resources would be allowed to limit licenses and award them to applicants who build up preference points.

Hunters would be allowed to use bait and dogs and could hunt at night.

The state Senate’s environmental committee has scheduled a public hearing on the measure for Tuesday morning at the state Capitol.

The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 9:30 a.m. in Room 417 North of the Capitol.

  1. There are already measures that farmers who are affected by any issues with wolves can take in order to remove the wolf from their property. And allowing hunting with dogs puts more ‘pets’ in danger than any accidental encounter with a wolf could ever do. There is NO good reason for allowing the hunting of wolves.
