Ron is using his outsider’s perspective to find solutions for the Northwoods
The ad begins, “In Wisconsin, we take pride in protecting our wildlife and natural resources. When gray wolf numbers dwindled, they received federal protection. When their populations fully recovered, those protections were lifted.”
The ad, which you can listen to here, is entitled “Northwoods,” and explains that a liberal judge put the gray wolf back on the endangered species list even as the gray wolf population reached dangerous levels. Now, large packs of gray wolves are killing dairy cows, cattle, and hunting dogs.
“What’s worse, over-population means it’s only a matter of time before the wolves attack a human, or the unthinkable – a child,” the ad continues. “That’s why he’s pushing legislation to put management of the gray wolf back in the hands of Wisconsinites, where it belongs. Ron Johnson – he listens, and finds solutions.”
- In 2014, a liberal judge put the gray wolf back on the endangered species list, overruling wildlife experts and taking management of the gray wolf out of the state of Wisconsin’s hands.
- Ron has teamed up with U.S. Rep. Reid Ribble and others to remove the gray wolf from the endangered species list and return control to states. Their legislation would not modify the U.S. Endangered Species Act, or stop the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from returning the gray wolf to the endangered species list if necessary.
