Our public lands are not killing fields: Stop unethical hunting practices 

Wolves of Douglas County Wisconsin

Opinion Editorial by Carole P. Ryan Ph.D., Milwaukee, Wisconsin

I oppose the restoration of cruel “so-called” hunting practices on Public Wildlife Refuges in Alaska (H.J. Res. 69 & S.J. 18)

I strongly oppose the recent voting actions by five of our Wisconsin United States Representatives, who swiftly and quietly, voted in favor of H.J. Resolution 69, authored by Alaska’s Rep. Don Young (R). The intent of Resolution 69, is to rollback a federal rule that was crafted to stop some of the most appalling “so-called” hunting practices imaginable on 16 national wildlife refuges covering 76 million acres in the state of Alaska. The Wisconsin Representatives who voted to remove critical rules protecting wildlife from cruel hunting practices on Alaskan Public Lands were Duffy, Gallagher,Grothman, Kind, and Sensenbrenner. Representatives Moore and Pocan opposed! Sadly, the US House of Representatives’ Republican majority vote passed this resolution, 225 to 193.

She also served as counselor and deputy director of external affairs for the Interior Department under George W. Bush.”

    Presidents really should provide a list of their government officials before the election. The UK has elected more than one politicians who said they were anti-nuclear and then got into office and promoted nuclear. Of course, in that instance, if people had researched their family ties they would have known, or at least suspected, that they were lying.
