Thank you to everyone who called the Wisconsin DNR and put pressure on them to close zones 3 and 6. As I stated in my previous post, Wisconsin went over limit by 18 dead wolves in zones 1 and 2 earlier in their “season”. Even though they set a quota of 150 dead wolves for the hunt, the Wisconsin DNR was keeping zones 3 and 6 open, which would have pushed the number of dead wolves over limit. As you can see by the above chart zones 3 and 6 will close tomorrow! The death toll now stands at 151, one wolf over limit. I’m expecting that number to increase by tomorrow but it could have been much worse if you had not called and protested. Every wolf life is precious and we grieve that so many wolves died in this hunt and especially the wolves who were being chased by up to six dogs per hunter, since the “wolf/dog fighting” season just opened.
Thank you again for taking the time to call the Wisconsin DNR to protest! Many, many HOWLS!!!!
For the wolves, For the wild ones,
