Kansas City – Led by Rep. Tom Tiffany, a coalition of members of U.S. Congress sent a letter to the Department of the Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, encouraging her to appeal the radical decision by an activist California judge that restored Endangered Species Act protections for the gray wolf in most states, despite the wolf being fully recovered.
“Activist judges in California do not know better than America’s farmers, ranchers and families,” said Hunter Nation President and CEO Luke Hilgemann. “Responsible predator management is successful when local conservation and hunting leaders come together to develop a plan that works for that community. Thank you to those in Washington who still have some commonsense.”
In September 2021, Hunter Nation filed a brief defending hunters in the case that was recently ruled on.
