It comes as no surprise to anyone that the Wisconsin State Assembly passed the wolf kill bill AB 502/SB 411 on a 69 to 25 vote. Not one Republican voted against the bill and 11 Democrats joined them in voting to sell out our wolves. The bill now goes to Gov. Walker who I am sure is drooling in anticipation of signing it so that he can continue to appease the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation, Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association, and all of the other anti-wildlife special interests in Wisconsin.

This is a sad day in our history when the wants of a vocal minority take priority over the wishes of the majority of Wisconsin citizens, and the Native American tribes that call this state home. We can only hope that the tribes and other pro-wildlife groups are able to challenges this barbarous bill in the courts so that the proposed wolf killing fest does not become a reality.

Here is an article about the bills passage in The New York Times:

WE VOW also wishes to extend our thanks to those who had the courage to vote against this anti-science and anti-wildlife bill.

    “No Republicans spoke for the bill or against the amendments……These mindless politicians disgust me. I thought of this old post on another blog- it took me a few days to get it- with help from DL. Fourth paragraph down- these words apply to Wisconsin’s politicians like Scott Suder as well

    Wolves are worth fighting for. We will win

    I’m surprized Peter Barca voted for this. I will call his office and ask if he took any $ from the Farm Bureau.
