The state’s Department of Natural Resources may soon have to explain to a judge why there isn’t a wolf hunt in Wisconsin this year.
The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty filed a lawsuit in Jefferson County yesterday challenging DNR’s lack of action. WILL says state law is clear, there will be a wolf hunt in Wisconsin if the gray wolf was ever delisted from the Endangered Species Act. That happened last month. WILL’s lawsuit says DNR is ignoring state law to uphold the unwritten political policy of Governor Evers.
WILL says anti-hunting groups are hoping to reverse the decision on the wolf and end any chance for hunters to control wolf populations in Wisconsin.
