Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation President Kevin Krentz released this statement regarding approval of the Wisconsin DNR’s Wolf Management Plan:
“Today the Department of Natural Resources missed an opportunity to restore trust from Wisconsin’s rural residents. By approving the wolf management plan, the Natural Resources board chose out of state advocates over Wisconsin rural voices who have developed a consensus of opposition to the plan.
This plan does nothing to address wolf/livestock conflicts and in some places encourages it. Wisconsin Farm Bureau will continue to advocate for management of our state’s top predator and make sure rural voices are represented.”
