On September 15, 2016 please join Wolves of Douglas County Wisconsin and other advocates across the state and the nation in an act of celebration and solidarity for the Wisconsin wolf. Let’s counter the anti-wolf message of the Great Lakes Wolf Summit with a show of Celebration for the Wisconsin wolf by placing signs in yards, windows and place of business, that states the following: I’m for protecting the Wisconsin wolf. Let’s celebrate the Wisconsin wolf and not kill him.
Senator Tom Tiffany and Representative Adam Jarchow are hosting a Great Lakes Wolf Summit on September 15, 2016 in Cumberland, WI that wants to return wolf management back into the state’s hands. A state that cannot be trusted to protect an endangered species. Wolves were mandated by WI state legislature, under Act 169 to be hunted as soon as they were taken off the ESA. Wolves were trapped, and hunted by the use of dogs: Out of all the states that hunt wolves, only Wisconsin allows hound hunters to use unleashed packs of dogs to hunt wolves. Wisconsin, quite literally, throws “dogs to the wolves.”
Senator Tiffany and Representative Jarchow aren’t citing any substantial evidence or reasons why wolves should be delisted. It’s a well known fact that the wolf isn’t eating all the livestock in Wisconsin. Wolf depredation is less than 12% on livestock. Yet these two politicians work to create problems where they don’t exist in order to further their political agendas.
Thankfully, a federal judge ordered the wolves back under federal protections in 2014. But ever since the wolves were placed back on the ESA these two legislators have been full of talk about delisting them.
Senator Tiffany and Representative Jarchow proposed Wolf Summit doesn’t begin to address the problems and concerns that have plagued wolf management in Wisconsin. It’s not surprising though, considering, that Senator Tom Tiffany & Representative Adam Jarchow are grossly out-of-line with the conservation values of their constituents according to Wisconsin League of Voters scorecard.
Take action for wolves:
