MADISON, Wis. – State Senator Tom Tiffany (R-Minocqua) released this statement following
reports the U.S. Department of Interior plans to lift endangered species protections:
“I absolutely agree with Secretary Bernhardt’s decision to remove endangered species
protections for the gray wolf. For several years, the state’s wolf population has gone unmanaged.

Many of the state’s top biologists believe the species has recovered and delisting is long-
overdue. Wisconsin has a proven track record of successful wolf management, and it is about

time the federal government returned management authority back to the states instead of forcing
us to rely on bureaucrats in Washington, D.C.”
