Wolf-Hunting In Wisconsin One Step Closer To Reality

Friday, March 2nd, 2012 at 6:20 am

A bill that would allow a wolf-hunting season in Wisconsin has passed the state Senate’s environmental committee vote.

The committee passed the hunting bill 5-2 on Thursday. Now the bill will be voted on in the full Senate.

The bill would allow a hunting and trapping season from mid-October through the end of February. The Department of Natural Resources would then be able to limit licenses.

Last year wolves in Wisconsin and Minnesota came off of the federal endangered species list. That means that the states are now able to manage the wolf population as they see fit.
