WOLVES VS DEER

Wolves Run Amok

By: Earl S.

For the third time in less than a year, the U.S. Congress will attempt to pass legislation that will allow the states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wyoming to control their wolf populations without interference from the courts.  Previous legislation was strongly supported by Wisconsin Senators Baldwin and Johnson and they will likely support the new proposal.  This latest legislation was introduced into the U.S. House by Representatives Sean Duffy (R-WI), Collin Peterson (D-MN), and Liz Cheney (R-WY).  Cheney is the daughter of former Vice-President Dick Cheney.  Wisconsin has been unable to hold wolf seasons for the past two years due to a federal court decision in 2014 that returned wolves to protected status.
