Wolf Hunting: Law vs. Cultural Belief

Photo by Carolina Nymark

Thu. 3/22 11a: Native people and some wildlife experts are raising concerns about plans to hunt wolves in Wisconsin and Minnesota. 

Hunting bills were introduced in the state legislatures after the federal government removed the wolf from the endangered species list in the Great Lakes area.

What happens when cultural belief clashes with the law and hunters? How sacred are these animals to the people connected to the land of the hunt?

Guests include Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife Commission Executive Administrator James Zorn.
