CALL FOR TELEPHONES TWEET STORM!!!
These Dems are obviously looking for Votes, Baldwin is up now…. Call your Reps, tell them you will not vote for them if they push delisiting wolves.
Republican Sen. Ron Johnson and Democrat Sen. Tammy Baldwin are political opposites, but have come together on the issue of removing federal protections for the gray wolf.
Johnson and Baldwin joined Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) to introduce legislation on Tuesday that would remove protections for the gray wolf in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and Wyoming under the federal Endangered Species Act .
The bill would replace federal protections with state wolf management plans. The legislation comes after a federal judge’s decision took away the power of states like Wisconsin to manage their wolf populations.
As their numbers have grown, wolves have become increasingly controversial, heightening conflict with landowners, hunters and others.
But some wolf advocates have pushed to keep federal protections, saying they doubt states will do an adequate job of protecting wolves.
