Last night, the Dane County Board of Supervisors, in a unanimous vote, passed Resolution 502, urging the Wisconsin Legislature to develop and support changes to statutes to ban any and all future wildlife killing contests.
Today the US House of Representatives passed HR 6784, the “Manage Our Wolves Act” despite public opposition from constituents, scientists, hunters and business owners.
Make the call to your representative and urge them to vote "NO" on HR 6784 using this toll free number (847) 232-6848 today and tell them the wolf needs the protections of the Endangered Species Act.
Starting this Saturday, over 12,000 bear hounds will be set loose on public land across Wisconsin to harass wildlife and disturb the peace of these natural areas.
Imagine Wisconsin losing a potential 168,000 jobs and $17.9 billion in consumer spending. If the policy “rider” that aims to de-list Great Lakes wolves is included in Congress’s budget bill, Wisconsin could see a severe drop in these numbers. Wolves are vital to our economy in both direct and indirect ways.
Many hunters pledge to do "whatever is necessary to restore deer numbers and quality deer hunting in northern Wisconsin." Yet, these hunters fail to look at themselves, their attitudes and activities. Because their notions are mistaken, and not in the best interests of deer or the future of deer hunting.
This proposed bill would prohibit conservation wardens from enforcing wolf conservation laws, prevent funds to be used for wolf depredations, and stop all wolf population monitoring in Wisconsin. Please join us in opposition at the hearing on Tuesday, January 16th.

For the second year in a row, the deer harvest numbers have been down statewide but up in the Northern Forest Zone. This comes with a “record high” population of 930-950 wolves in Wisconsin.
Many sport hunters proudly post pictures of themselves with their “harvest” and this year’s deer gun season was no exception. Some defend that these actions pay for conservation -- a strange kind of argument with many flaws.
