Support Democrat Senator Fred Risser’s Proposal to Ban Hunting & Trapping in Wisconsin State Parks

 

Wyalusing State Park is a 2,628-acre Wisconsin state park

 In 2012 the republican dominated WI legislature passed legislation allowing for hunting and trapping in State park properties.  The controversial aspect of Act 168 is a requirement that all state parks be open to hunting and trapping. The negative aspects to hunting and trapping on public park properties is that it could drive away vistors.  Hunting on state park properties can adversly affect visitation because of fear for personal safety.  Hearing gun shots and worrying that a beloved pet could get caught in a trap while hiking state park trails is a major concern for state park visitors. 

Recent news is that democrat Senator Fred Risser  has drawn up a pair of bills that would ban hunting and limit the types of mechanisms trappers can use in state parks.

 Wisconsin state legislators need to hear from voters on this issue. State parks are public owned and a shared natural resource by all citizens.
