A Republican state lawmaker says he’s pleased to see a renewed effort in Congress to remove the gray wolf from the endangered species list. The bill, co-sponsored by Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy calls returning management of wolves to Great Lakes states.
State Senator Tom Tiffany says the move is extremely important to efforts to control the population, and would clear the way to restoring Wisconsin’s wolf hunting season. 
Wisconsin created a wolf hunting season after management of the animals was returned to states in 2011. However, amid a strong pushback from animal rights groups, a federal judge returned the animal to federal protection in 2014.
