Wisconsin has a wolf problem that needs to be addressed. Gov. Scott Walker and the state Legislature has addressed that issue by creating a wolf hunting and trapping season to be overseen by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. I applaud them for this decision. Now Rep. Nick Milroy, D-South Range, and Sen. Bob Jauch, D-Poplar, use this opportunity to attack Walker playing partisan politics saying the DNR should have control over the wolf herd.
Did they not read the bill? The DNR will oversee the hunting and trapping with a permit system. According to news releases: “The bill would establish a hunting and trapping season that would run from mid-October through the end of February. The Department of Natural Resources would be allowed to determine how many licenses to issue through a preference point system.” Milroy and Jauch are trying to use this as a political issue and are playing partisan politics.
According to the DNR website the wolf numbers in 2010 were 800 wolves; it is now 2012 so we know that number is up and the original DNR plan wanted to limit the wolves at 250 animals. Wolves need to be controlled and for those that love the animal do not worry there will still be wolves in Wisconsin.
