Wisconsin wolf advocates build momentum with court ruling, reward offers

From the Wausau Pilot & Review in Wisconsin:

Advocates continue pushing for accountability in Wisconsin’s wolf hunts, one of which was held in February. Two groups, Hunters for Wolves and Animal Wellness Action, have offered cash rewards for information regarding illegal poaching of wolves in Wisconsin. Legal actions also continue in the courts, which recently resulted in another hunt being blocked for the fall and winter.

Judge Jacob Frost will hear a case challenging the legality of the fall 2021 wolf hunting season. The briefing schedule will take the case past Feb. 28, 2022, the official end date for Wisconsin’s 2021-22 hunting and trapping season for wolves. Basically, that means that there will be no legal hunting or trapping of wolves for the rest of the winter.
