The Wisconsin State Journal posted two items today about the wolf hunting bill, AB 502, that is set for a vote in the Assembly tomorrow:
Letter to the Editor from a concerned citizen:
Also, a reminder of the rally at noon tomorrow at the State Capitol in Madison.
If you are interested in rallying against these bills there is a rally scheduled for Tuesday, March 13 by the Lady Forward Statute ( State Street entrance) at the Capitol between 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM.
This horrible bill is to be voted on tomorrow in the Assembly. I you haven’t already contact your representatives to speak out against this bill. Here is what WE VOW sent every representative today:
This letter is written on behalf of a new organization, Wisconsin Wildlife Ethic- Vote Our Wildlife, that is organizing to give the majority of non-hunting citizens a voice that we previously never had. We are hearing from outraged citizens from Wisconsin and across the world about AB 502 and the provisions contained within. Many of those citizens are also speaking of boycotting Wisconsin tourism and products if this horrendous bill passes. The below petitions have almost 14,000 people who are speaking out about this bill:
The brutal provisions in the bill aside, this makes Wisconsin look horrible in the eyes of the country and the world. To allow for the hunting of an animal that was considered endangered just a month and a half ago through the use of dog packs, at night, with bait, with electronic calls, trapping, killing pregnant females, over four and a half months looks like Wisconsin is declaring war on this majestic animal. This bill is shameful and should be voted down.
Our new organization Wisconsin Wildlife Ethic-Vote Our Wildlife (Wisconsin WE VOW) https://wiwildlifeethic.org/ will be keeping track of who does and does not vote for this bill. Our goal is to bring a voice to the silent majority who have been shut out of the decision making process concerning our wildlife. We are the majority, and we will vote for our wildlife.
Thank you for your consideration,
Wisconsin Wildlife Ethic-Vote Our Wildlife
