Wisconsin Judge Says DNR Violated Law By Not Immediately Scheduling Wolf Hunting Season

Monday, November 22nd, 2021 -- 9:01 AM


(AP) A Wisconsin judge says the Department of Natural Resources violated the law by not immediately scheduling a wolf hunting season after federal protections were removed in February.

In an order Thursday, Jefferson County Judge Bennett Brantmeier said the agency must hold a hunt immediately any time federal protections are lifted during the statutory hunting season, which runs from November through February.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports the injunction came in a lawsuit brought by Hunter Nation. However, wolf hunting in Wisconsin remains on hold while a Dane County judge considers a lawsuit filed in August by wildlife advocacy groups
