MADISON (WKOW)-- There was a vote on the wolf hunt in Wisconsin this week and people are saying "no" to allowing dogs in the hunt.
Wolf hunting in the state of Wisconsin has been illegal for decades, but was recently allowed by the Department of Natural Resources. The use of hunting dogs to help track down the wolves has been an issue over the past few months leading up to the vote.
Those who attended the Conservation Congress' Spring hearings narrowly voted down the use of dogs to hunt wolves, but they also approved new regulations governing the practice, on the same ballot. The Conservation Congress advises the Department of Natural Resources on policy. Every year it holds statewide hearings, asking people to vote on a number of outdoor issues.
