Senator Tom Tiffany (R) and Representative Adam Jarchow want United States Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) to help Senator Ron Johnson (R) on a bill calling for wolves to be delisted in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and Wyoming. Please take action for wolves and contact Senator Tammy Baldwin and ask her not to approve any wolf delisting bills or riders.
In the news:
Following last week’s elections, a local State Senator has returned his focus towards delisting the wolf from the endangered species classification.
Tom Tiffany, along with Representative Adam Jarchow have penned another letter with that call. The two would like to see the wolf declassified in Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Wyoming. That would allow states to manage the population, and would likely lead to a return of the Wisconsin Wolf Hunt.
Senator Ron Johnson and Congressman Reid Ribble introduced a bill that would accomplish just that. Tiffany called on Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin to do the same.
Tiffany said, ” In the past, Wisconsin has proven to be capable of managing our wolf population and now is the time to return control to the states.”
He also cited his Great Lakes Wolf Summit, held in Western Wisconsin earlier this year, which he says had nearly 200 attendees. Source
Wisconsin state management of wolves has a law on the books that mandates a wolf hunt when wolves are not on the Endangered Species List, that also allows the barbaric use of dogs to hunt wolves. This is not how an iconic species should be managed. Wolves were hunteted to near extinction. Wolves are on the Endangered Species Lists since December 2014. Please take action for wolves. Keep wolves listed!
