Stop the Wisconsin Wolf Hunt, Oct. 15th- Feb. 28th, 2014.

Grey Wolves, Canis lupus, are a keystone predator in our forest communities that help regulate deer herds, & were only recently delisted from federal endangered status less than two years ago. With approx.  only 800 wolves in WI, one of the few states left of their once nation-wide range, the WDNR aims to harvest 150; WE aim for zero. Ojibwe lore tells us whatever happens to ma’iingan, happens to Anishanabe, the great lakes indigenous peoples. Stand in solidarity with the wolf, ma’iingan, & several tribes who have taken a stance against the Wolf Hunt such as Bad River, Red Cliff, Lac Courte Oreilles, Lac du Flambeau, & Menominee. There are several packs that run the Penokee Range; these and all wolves deserve safe havens.
