URGENT: Pro-Poaching Bill to be Heard in the Wisconsin State Senate on Tuesday

We showed up in force on Wednesday to speak out against this bill in the State Assembly. But our work is not done!  Now the Senate will take this up on Tuesday of next week.

You can register in opposition and listen to the debate, and/or you can speak for up to three minutes per person. It is important to show our legislators that we care about wildlife and animals in Wisconsin.

Please contact Melissa Smith at wiforwolves@gmail.com if you can attend this hearing! I will be a the Capitol at 8:00 AM and can meet you there to help you prepare.

Tuesday, January 16th @ 10:00 AM

411 South, Capitol  |  Madison, WI

Committee on Sporting Heritage, Mining and Forestry

The committee will hold a public hearing on Senate Bill 602 Relating to: enforcement of federal and state laws relating to the management of the wolf population and to the killing of wolves and expenditure of funds for wolf management purposes.

As these bills have failed to pass Congress, anti-wolf Wisconsin lawmakers have introduced S.B. 602/A.B. 712, which would:

(1) prevent Wisconsin law enforcement officers from enforcing or attempting to enforce any federal or state law relating to wolf management or the illegal killing of wolves; and

(2) prevent the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) from expending any funds for the purpose of wolf management, or informing or supporting federal law enforcement officers regarding the enforcement of the federal ESA.

S.B. 602/A.B. 712 endorses the poaching of wolves, and prevents the state from future wolf monitoring efforts—against the wishes of the Wisconsin public.

Please email me directly at wiforwolves@gmail.com if you would like more information and/or are able to attend the hearing on Tuesday. I will be a the Capitol at 8:00 AM and can meet you there to help you prepare.

Thank you,

Melissa Smith
