Wisconsin legislators have proposed legislation (LRB 3737/1) to end the state's protection of wolves and force police to ignore the killing of wolves.

 This action, whether passed or not, signals to wolf haters across Wisconsin that they can poach wolves without penalty.

"They are depredating our deer population, killing livestock and attacking family pets," the bill's authors said in a memo to their colleagues seeking co-sponsors for the bill.

Claim: “Wolves are killing our pets.”

Fact: One pet was killed this year. Seventeen hounding dogs were killed by wolves protecting themselves during the bear hunt, in which hunting with dogs is allowed.

Claim: Tiffany claims wolves are “depredating our deer population.”

Fact: According to the DNR website, “CWD is fast spreading in the deer herd in Wisconsin: During the past 15 years, the trend in prevalence in adult males has risen from 8-10 percent to over 30 percent and in adult females from about 3-4 percent to nearly 15 percent.”

Claim: Tiffany and Jarchow claim that “wolves are killing livestock.”


• According to the Department of Agriculture, wolves “may” be responsible for 0.002 percent of livestock deaths pre-slaughterhouse for human consumption. Ninety percent die due to health issues and poor husbandry.

• In Wisconsin in 2017, the 26 confirmed wolf/livestock depredations were 0.000015 percent of the 1,549,000 beef and dairy cattle in the state.

• The Dec. 18, 2016 Madravenspeak column “Leaked emails show hunters want to wipe out Wisconsin wolves” covered studies by biologist Adrian Treves of UW-Madison, and his video “Predator Control Should Not Be a Shot in the Dark.”

URGENT ACTION ALERT: It will take a public outcry to save wolves. Please contact your own Wisconsin legislators via this action alert

  1. Hey wolves are needed they should never be eliminated

  2. Sandy says:

    Save the wolf, you need them for your ecosystem, your rivers. You get rid of the wolves, your state will become nothing. Check out how Yelloewstone flourished after the wolves were brought back. Wisconsin are you dumb or just plain stupid!

  3. Eliminate the wolf and you upset the balance of the nature of the land. What they prey on multiplies, changes the vegetative landscape. The ripple effect will affect all life in the area.

    Do not kill the wolves. The ecological system benefits when wolves are part of it.
    It is just ignorance to kill them.

    There is no reason for doing this! What a bunch of barbarians! Those that do this or want this are serial killers! Serial killers start out like this then move on to people. Anyone voting for this bill,or endorses it in any way,should be considered as a serial killer! None of those voting or endorsing this bill should NOT be elected to anything, anywhere, forever!

    Animal Rights Must Become the Highest Priority Now In This World
    That's why this old corrupt and sick world absolutely must be brought to an end. Allowing this to continue is allowing breeding more and more serial killers and psychopaths by the minute. Animal Rights must become the highest priority now in the world and people must rise altogether and stand up for this, for the sake of the Animal Kingdom and for the sake of our own Self-Defense, our Children and Grandchildren.

  17. When the tick that hangs out with deer bites you and you develop lyme's disease remember that deer could have been eaten by a wolf. Wolves prefer deer. There is a reason why they are fruitful and multiply. But then I guess when the wolf is gone and you start complaining about the deer eating your garden and you will start killing them off

    Leave the wolves alone. The majority of people are for protections for the wolf. The wolf is good for the eco system. Don't let a couple of wolf haters try to pass laws that are devastating to the wolf. Educating yourself on the facts is key in defense of the wolf.

    Save the wolf they are loyal and the keep the balance in nature without them the whole ecosystem would collapse see the results of reintroducing the wolf to yellowstone

    This decision is based on pure ignorance. Wolves are a necessary part of a healthy ecosystem. Science is hard, but it would be great if reputable ecologists would take the time to explain to you, in terms that even you would understand, why indigenous predators like the wolf are NECESSARY. If you have difficulty in understanding this concept, then understand this: these animals are indigenous, and are part of what makes this country beautiful. They belong in America!!

    First we wipe out the Wolves then what's next the Bears then last but not least the Deer!

  28. No surprise from a state that has voted for Scott Walker. Just how ignorant can you get?

  29. Unknown says:

    I live in the UK, we watch what is going on in the US with horror. What on earth has happened to common sense and humanity, you need the wolves. Why are there so many blood thirsty killers that just want to destroy everything, it is so sad. People need to stand up and protect the wolves, they are beautiful creatures, the clearly have more morality and humanity than the gun crazy lawmakers.

  30. Gynette Cathey says:

    You are useing absolutely no reason here. Wolves are vital to healthy ecosystems. This has been PROVEN REPEATEDLY by science. Not one person seeking this bill passage has any background or knowledge of science or ecosystems . Your deer population is overrun with CWD. Hounds trained to maul and destroy wolves in hunt have been killed by wolves trying to defend themselves against attacks by many dogs at once. These are not pets. They are kept only to kill and are replaced monetarily by the government. Stop these unreasonable attacks on wolves and wildlife.

  31. Unknown says:

    Stop the killing!Ever hear the word boycott? I swear will check your state's dairy brands and find alternates!

  32. Unknown says:

    You cannot terminate the lives of wolves. These animals serve a very unique and specific role in development and balance of the ecosystem. The wolves function serves as a catalyst to the development of its surrounding environment and other wildlife.

  33. Unknown says:

    You Can't exterminate all the wolves without living to regret it. Wolves are Very important to our eco-system. Wolves also help eliminate rodents that carry several diseases that will kill a LOT more than a couple cows. Plague and Wasting disease will eventually kill all people around. Check your science and read up on the seriousness of Plague and Wasting Disease.
