Suspend Wolf Hunting and Trapping in Minnesota
(Your Optional Comment)
The vast majority of Minnesotans believe wolves should be protected for future generations and oppose the cruel methods used to hunt them for recreation. After a single hunting and trapping season, the Minnesota wolf population is at the lowest level since 1988. Recreational wolf hunting and trapping does not support the long-term survival of the wolf in Minnesota.
I urge you to suspend the recreational wolf hunt and to focus on the original wolf management goals. These goals are to ensure the long-term survival of the wolf in Minnesota, and to reduce conflicts between wolves and humans. The random killing of non-problem wolves for sport undermines these stated goals. It is the responsibility of the DNR, as stewards of our state’s wildlife, to protect our wolf population for future generations.
I’m asking elected state leaders to suspend future recreational wolf hunting and trapping seasons, and work to support non-lethal management methods that proactively address the root cause of conflicts with wolves.
