Wolf hunt is unnecessary
To the Editor:
The Legislature is meeting again in St. Paul, and who knows what bills they will pass this year.
There is no scientific evidence that hunting wolves decreases wolf predations on livestock, and the wolf hunt, created by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, is admittedly not for population control. It is purely recreational.
Why take an animal that was on the federal endangered species list one year and start hunting and killing it the next?
I urge my fellow Minnesotans – particularly those voting in St. Paul on our behalf at the Legislature - to join me in advocating against this unnecessary wolf hunt.
