DNR sets quota of 130 wolves for Wisconsin’s fall wolf hunt
From Wisconsin Public Radio:
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says it’s setting a quota of 130 wolves for the fall wolf hunt, rejecting a move by its own policy-setting board to more than double the amount of wolves that can be harvested.
In a news release, the DNR said state law authorizes the agency to make the final call on a quota for the hunt that’s set to begin Nov. 6. The move is the latest development in an apparent power struggle between the DNR under Gov. Tony Evers’ administration and the conservative majority on the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board who were appointed by former Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
