The DC Mind, Part 78,659

From Washington DC, the bureaucrats can see all, know all, and fix all things.

Even wolves which are in Minocqua.

...In Minocqua, Stepp said the DNR is opposed to aspects of the proposed rule that recognizes the presence of two distinct species of wolves in the Midwest: the gray wolf, or Canis lupus, the wolf species currently listed under the protection act, and the eastern wolf, or Canis lycaon, which has a historical range that includes portions of eastern Canada and the northeastern United States.

DNR officials said the agency would have great difficulty managing wolf populations if the gray wolf was delisted and the eastern wolf was protected because genetic testing has shown Wisconsin's wolves are a mix of both species.

Andryk said the DNR has managed wolves as a single population since 1978. "They are physically indistinguishable," he said.

The Wackos will use this phantom "second species" as a lever to prevent WI DNR from controlling the population, of course. And the Wacko solution?

Buy guard dogs.

No, I'm not making that up. Read the article.
