Please pass law that directs the DNR to implement the Wolf Management Plan, suspend the wolf hunting and trapping season and stop the indiscriminate methods used to kill wolves. This 2014 session, the Minnesota legislature can protect wolves for future generations.
After a single hunting and trapping season, the Minnesota wolf population declined by 25% and was at the lowest level since 1988. But the DNR held another wolf hunt and did not even conduct another census. The wolf hunt has not increased tolerance for wolves and appears to have unleashed even more hatred toward wolves.
Baiting, trapping and snaring injures and kills many animals including eagles and domestic dogs. Baiting works against the principle that wolves need to stay away from people and livestock. A recreational wolf hunt is not wolf management. It creates unpredictable effects for wolves, people and especially for farmers.
It is up to elected officials to pass laws that provide oversight to the DNR since they are not doing their job of protecting the wolf for future generations.
