A group of conservationists is calling Wisconsin’s wolf hunt politically motivated and harmful.
The group, Wisconsin’s Green Fire, released its report yesterday. The report says hunters took too many alpha males and bred female wolves, and said that could eliminate pup production in 60 percent of the state’s wolf packs. Green Fire also says the hunt damaged relations with the Ojibwe Tribes, and showed the gap between regulators at the DNR and state lawmakers. Hunters in Wisconsin bagged 218 wolves during what turned-out to be just a three day season back in February.
