Wisconsin Wolf Season Will Proceed
MADISON Ė This afternoon Dane County Circuit Judge Peter Anderson issued a partial injunction involving the use of dogs for Wisconsinís wolf season. Judge Andersonís partial injunction makes it clear that Wisconsinís wolf season will proceed.
Department of Natural Resources spokesman Bill Cosh issued the following statement on the ruling:
We understand that some individuals may have decided to wait for todayís ruling prior to purchasing a wolf application. Considering the importance of getting a preference point in this initial season, we will be extending the wolf application deadline until September 7.
Regarding the use of dogs and the injunction, we will consult with our attorneys and assess all of our options. Further, it is important to note that this is a temporary injunction, that suspends the use of dogs in wolf hunting until the judge and parties have more thoroughly investigated, briefed, discussed an litigated the issue so the judge can make a final ruling. A schedule to do that will be set up with the judge, pending the results of the September 14 hearing on the Stateís motion to dismiss.
