African lion killing highlights WI 'sport,' trophy hunting

The unspeakably sleazy poaching of a famous lion in Africa is raising the entire issue of so-called 'sport' hunting for trophies, so greater discussion in Wisconsin about wolf
Wisconsin is killing its wolves
and bear shooting and trapping so heavily pushed by powerful special interest gun and hunting lobbies definitely has a higher need right now.

You might also want to read up on various baiting and hunting training methods allowed by state law in Wisconsin.

Wolf hunting in Wisconsin and other states is currently under a federal court ban, though Congress could lift it.

The principle promoter in the Wisconsin legislature of a wolf hunt rushed into law, and which included the Wisconsin-only permission for dogs in the fray - - even in so-called pre-hunting training - -  was State Rep. Joel Kleefisch, (R-Oconomowoc), a hunting enthusiast.
