Finally a  victory!! Judge Peter C. Anderson has barred hunting Wisconsin wolves with dogs. This could derail the Wisconsin wolf hunt for this year. GOOD!!  Wisconsin was set to sic up to six dogs per hunter on innocent wolves. But it won’t be happening and wolf advocates couldn’t be happier. The wolf hunt insanity has reached epic levels of depravity and hunting wolves with dogs was the height of it. Now let’s hope there will be no wolf hunt in Wisconsin this year or any year.
