Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources says nothing will change in the state following the latest federal decision on wolves.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service last week said it is going to focus on a national wolf strategy. The DNR says that means Wisconsin’s new wolf plan will stay the same, and wolves will remain protected on the federal endangered species list. The DNR just adopted a new wolf management plan for Wisconsin that eliminates a specific wolf population goal, and all but bans hunting of wolves until their population is well over a thousand.
