Lawsuit filed to stop Minnesota wolf hunt


Lawsuit filed to stop Minnesota wolf hunt

Two groups filed a lawsuit on Tuesday seeking to stop a Minnesota wolf hunting and trapping season.

The Center for Biological Diversity and Howling for Wolves contend the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources failed to provide a “formal opportunity for public comment on recently approved rules establishing wolf hunting and trapping.”

The groups are seeking a preliminary injunction to prevent the opening of hunting and trapping seasons this fall. Minnesota’s wolf hunting season is scheduled to open Nov. 3, concurrent with the state’s gun deer hunting season.

    More stupidity from the Idiotic “Conservation” groups that are responsible for introducing these wolves which have now devastated BOTH the Deer and Moose herds in Minnesota and other states. These jerks had no idea what they were doing messing with the balance of nature. Hunters and gun owners are the BEST friends wild life have in terms of conservation and contributing to TRUE conservation efforts.

    I live right in the middle of Northern Minnesota’s wolf range. On any given night I can step out on my deck and hear at least 2 and sometimes as many as 4 different packs out on their hunts. I have had them chase deer right through my yard. I can’t walk my dogs the quarter mile to my mailbox without being armed. Our deer population has been decimated to the point where this year we are allowed only 1 deer, (down from as many as 5 a couple of years ago.) So it is time to manage the population and at the same time restore a little of their fear of man and keep them away from our yards and pets. It is very easy for these people to sit in their suburban neighborhoods and try to legislate an issue that does not directly affect them. It is time to stop the Disney-esque view of wolves and manage them like any other big game animal.

    We live in the Bayfield valley area and it,s getting very scary with dangerous man eating animals.This last two years we came within 200 ‘ of a 7′ gray wolf who watched us for a time and my neighbor farmer had the hell scared out his family when it sat and watched from 200′ in the open as he was chopping wood.My friends have seen another 7’ black ten miles up the Bayfield river.We have never had these in Southern Ontario and I am a hunter 64 years old!
