Wisconsin Governor Calls for Wolf Hunts

Gov. Scott Walker attempting to get wolf hunting reinstated in his state. Wolf populations have increased by 16 percent in Wisconsin since last year.That is an all time high. Wolf hunts have been placed on hold since 2014 when a federal judge put the gray wolf back on the Endangered Species List.

“We had a successful harvest set up with a wolf hunt, that’s why we further modified it. So, we’ve showed we can do a good job of monitoring our harvest,” Walker said. “We just need the federal judge to give us that opportunity again.”

Wisconsin hunters killed 528 wolves during three consecutive hunting and trapping seasons before the relisting.
