'"DNR wants to allow hounders to "train" their dogs on wolves with no restrictions right through the breeding, denning, and birthing seasons until the end of March. When pregnant females need to be preparing for the birth of their litters they will be harassed or even attacked by unlimited packs of vicious dogs. The fine print reads that they can "only" use packs of "six" dogs at a time to "train"but that they can switch out to new packs of dogs if the original pack gets tired. So essentially unlimited dogs will be allowed to go after wolves during this very sensitive time. The DNR even has the gall to call this a "reasonable fair-chase restriction." This is outrageous! In less than a month Wisconsin may be hunting and killing wolves/pregnant wolves/and possibly wolf cubs. To read more about this recent item added to the killer wish list of Act 169 Section 2B1 please check out this very informative article:
Regarding this statement: "Hunters will be paid up to $2,500 for each dog injured or killed by the wolf it is pursuing." The DNR recently decided not to compensate for dogs injured while pursuing wolves, but don't let them fool you! Hunters can still claim the money for dogs injured/killed by other predators and there's nothing stopping hunters from lying about how their dogs were hurt!
238 wolves were killed this hunting season, that alone is 30% of the Wisconsin wolf populationand doesn't include natural and unreported illegal deaths.
Please sign in support of RETRACTING DNR ACT 169 Section 2.B.1.!! And please sign in support of the statement that "we the undersigned will boycott Wisconsin. We vow never to visit, vacation at, or support Wisconsin in anyway until action against DNR's Act 169 Section 2.B.1. is taken!"
The state of Wisconsin paid $214,794 for wolf depredation in 2012. How many families in Wisconsin will sit in wait for emergency housing, food, or medical care while the DNR wastes their money on a depredation program for a species that literally only just started to recover in numbers?
