MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker's executive budget would prohibit wolf hunters from going after the animals at night.
A law Republicans passed last spring establishing the wolf hunt allows people to hunt wolves at night after the November gun deer season ends. Walker's budget would repeal that section of the law.
The governor's spokesman says night hunting isn't necessary. He says hunters killed only one wolf at night during last fall's hunt and still easily met the statewide kill quota.
The law's chief author, Assembly Majority Leader Scott Suder, an Abbotsford Republican, says he disagrees. He says hunters are allowed to go after other animals such as coyotes and raccoons at night. He says he plans to speak with Walker's office about retaining the provision.
