WI GOP lawmakers in budget stall, agree on a woodchuck hunt

The Wisconsin budget is stalled, as is job growth and business start-ups, but the ruling party has found a priority it can get behind.

That's why two GOP-dominated legislative committees on a party-line vote Wednesday approved killing woodchucks year-round. No bag limit.

Also - - they did this without bringing forward wildlife science to support and justify hunting these animals

Reminiscent of how the Wisconsin wolf hunt - - now suspended by a federal court - - was hurriedly established at the behest of the same Assemblyman - - Joel Kleefisch, (R-Waukesha County), who was instrumental in pushing the woodchuck hunt legislation.

It would be much better for the environment and the economy of Wisconsin, if instead of woodchucks the legislature targeted GOPhers...
