Ask MN Governor Dayton: Suspend Wolf Hunt

Please direct the DNR to fully implement the Wolf Management Plan, suspend the wolf hunting and trapping season and stop the indiscriminate and cruel methods used to kill wolves.

The DNR is taking reckless chances with Minnesota's wolf population; the only original population in the continental US. After the first wolf hunting and trapping season, the Minnesota wolf population declined by 25% and the population remains at its lowest level since 1988. The wolf population had been stable from 1998-2008 without any hunting. 

Nearly 80% of Minnesotans agree that wolves should be protected for future generations.  There is nothing about a wolf hunt that protects wolves.  The DNR has not even implemented their own Wolf Management Plan of 2001.  And the DNR does not have adequate data about wolves and all sources of wolf illnesses and deaths including poaching. The wolf hunt has moved our state backwards and away from a rational plan for allowing wolves to live.

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 provide oversight to the DNR since they are not doing their job of protecting the wolf for future generations.
