Courts Buckle To Animal Rights Again

Wisconsin has a growing grey wolf problem. The problem is there are too many and wildlife officials want to do something about it. Too many wolves cause many problems from wolf-human encounters, killing livestock and family pets and starvation to name a few.

The wolf is still listed as endangered in Wisconsin although efforts are underway to remove it from that list. Scientists with the Department of Natural Resouces had petitioned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, who still has jurisdiction over the wolves, to kill as many as 43 of the animals. A permit was granted.

Animal rights groups ran to the courts to stop the killing and a federal judge has issued an injunction to prohibit the killing of the wolves.
