Wisconsin Citizens Oppose the Use of Dogs to Hunt Wolves

CAMPAIGN ANNOUNCEMENT:

Senator Kedzie, we will be staging a protest in the of Elkhorn, WI., Sat. Oct 26th from 12-5pm!

Do the right thing and let SB 93 out of your committee so it can be debated on its own merits on the Senate floor. Why are you for state-sanctioned dog fighting? By holding up SB 93 (bill to remove the use of dogs to track wolves in the wolf hunt) you are giving a green light to canine on canine slaughter this fall. Are you that cruel?

IF YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER TO STAND UP WITH OUR ROAD TEAM ON OCT. 26TH, GIVE US AN EMAIL AND WE WILL FORWARD YOU FURTHER INFORMATION. IT IS TIME TO TAKE THIS FIGHT DIRECTLY TO SENATOR KEDZIE! FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE September 20, 2013

Wisconsin Citizens Oppose the Use of Dogs to Hunt Wolves

6500 residents living in ten Wisconsin Counties were asked, “Are you in in favor of the use of trained hunting dogs to track wolves in Wisconsin during the upcoming wolf hunting season?” By a resounding 94%, Wisconsin residents said, “No”. Adam Kassulke, founder of Wisconsin Wolf Front, sponsor of the survey, said, “Many individuals were shocked to learn that Wisconsin is the only state that allows the use of dog to hunt wolves.”

The survey was conducted at public events each weekend during June, July and August by teams of at least three student volunteers from Wisconsin Wolf Front. Our student volunteers approached individuals at these public events, verified the individual was a resident of the county being surveyed and asked if they would take a few moments to participate in a short survey regarding a wildlife issue in Wisconsin. “Surprisingly, only 2% declined comment” Kassulke said.

The practice of using dogs to hunt wolves is based on poor policy. This is evidenced by the 23 hounds killed this year alone by wolves during the bear training season. Although State Senator Risser has introduced SB93, which would ban the use of dogs to hunt wolves, the bill has been stalled in the Committee on Natural Resources since March. “It is important that we apply pressure to Senator Kedzie by asking him to move SB93 out of committee. We must stop this archaic practice.” Kassulke said.

About The Wisconsin Wolf Front is dedicated to ending the wolf hunt in Wisconsin. We are also involved in education and political work that furthers the protection of the wolf in Wisconsin. 801 N. Thompson Drive Unit 208 Madison, WI. 53704.
