Groups sue to end Midwest wolf hunt

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Humane Society of the United States and other groups are suing to restore federal protections for wolves in the western Great Lakes region.

The groups filed the lawsuit today in federal court in the District of Columbia against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

They say taking wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan off the endangered list last year threatens the recovery of wolves throughout most of their historic range.

Hunters and trappers in Minnesota and Wisconsin killed over 500 wolves during those states’ recently concluded seasons. The Michigan Legislature voted in December to authorize the resumption of wolf hunting.

The Humane Society of the United States provided a copy of the lawsuit to The Associated Press before its public announcement.

Freeatlast...do you expect the wolves to line up to be neutered?

Hunting is controlled by season and limit constraints! How do we monitor the wolves to ensure they harvest no more than we allow?

By limiting their numbers...thats how!

Freeatlast Maybe you can give them a hand at neutering them. Maybe you could hold them while someone else does the nutjob. What do you think?
