Press Release

Madison, WI -- Rob Stafsholt (R - New Richmond) issued the following statement in response to today’s Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge issuing a writ of mandamus ordering Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) to comply with state law and conduct a February 2021 gray wolf hunt:

“For months I have claimed that on this issue, the Ever’s Administration and DNR Secretary Preston Cole have instructed their department to blatantly ignore state statute. Today’s court decision proves that to be true and is a victory for the rule of law. The court ruled Governor Evers and Secretary Cole ignored state statue and refused to move forward with a gray wolf hunting season. They knowingly infringed on Wisconsinite’s constitutionally protected right to hunt. It is time for the Ever’s administration to start following the law.”
