Letter to the Editor:

I’m pretty disappointed by the need for, the process and results of the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board (NRB) special meeting held on Jan. 22 regarding a wolf hunt this winter. 

Ultimately, the NRB will not instruct the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to hold a wolf hunt this winter. More than that, I’m absolutely disgusted by the leadership within the DNR. What we need as equally to a wolf season is new leadership in the DNR from (Secretary) Preston Cole on down.

If the DNR is not willing to stand up for those in northern Wisconsin stuck with the unmanaged wolf population, we need to change them out immediately! They clearly have stopped working for all of us and only work for Madison and Milwaukee residents, who have no real exposure, and clearly the tribes.
