Please Submit Comments: The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources wants public input on the November wolf hunt kill numbers.

If wildlife and its habitat are not protected under a strong and sound public trust system, the public will not have the ability to challenge, and therefore influence, management decisions.

Here’s the deal. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) is a government agency working to protect our natural resources, and in this case, gray wolves. The agency scientists were largely removed by the previous conservative administration in charge. Too in charge I would like to add. They seem have a choke-hold on our Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Under this conservative administration a law was written by them and the Wisconsin’s Bear Hunters Association and pushed through the legislature, that mandated a wolf hunt, when gray wolves are not listed under the protection of the endangered Species Act. Therefore the conservative led legislature has essentially tied the hands of our public governmental agency in charge, the WDNR. And the WDNR wants to hear your voice, loud and clear, through a written comment CLICK HERE. Deadline to submit a comment is August 4, 2021 at noon.

Wisconsin Act 169, is a law that mandates a hunt must be held when wolves are NOT listed on the Endangered Species List. Wisconsin, quite literally, throws “dogs to the wolves. The barbaric act of Wolf-Hounding is legal in Wisconsin and is sanctioned when wolves are NOT listed on the Endangered Species List.

Act 169 wolf hunt law strips away WDNR’s powers to manage a species according to the Public Trust Doctrine, essentially what is best scientific practice for the management of gray wolves.

Please make your comment by noon on August 4, 2021 deadline CLICK HERE .

For the Public Trust Doctrine to be an effective wildlife conservation tool, the public must understand that wild animals, regardless of whose property they are on, belong to everyone.
