New Wolf Bills From Duffy, Johnson-Baldwin

Representative Duffy and Senators Johnson and Baldwin have announced bi-partisan legislation to return the management of gray wolves to state control. The following is a statement from WBHA President, Carl Schoettel:

“We applaud Representative Duffy, Senator Johnson, and Senator Baldwin for the reintroduction of this important legislation. Every day Wisconsinites witness the consequences of an irresponsible decision from an out of touch Federal Judge. Wolves in Wisconsin need to be managed, just like all of our other wildlife. The State of Wisconsin has an excellent track record of managing wolves. Congress needs to act quickly to return to science-based wolf policy.”
