Senator Tiffany: Pull state wolf program funding, critical of judge’s ruling

A northern WI State Senator is not pleased with last Friday’s ruling by a judge stripping Wisconsin of the ability to manage the wolf population, says U.S. District Judge Beryl A. Howell’s decision calling the state’s program “arbitrary and capricious” is out of line…”  The State Senator is also calling on US Senators Ron Johnson and Tammy Baldwon and incoming Members of Congress to examine the endangered species act, and to dig into how federal judges can, as he put it, overstep their authority.
