Mockler Opposes Wolf Changes

Cheyenne, Wy – A Democrat is disagreeing with the Governors approach to the wolf issue. State Senator Jayne Mockler of Cheyenne does not concur with Governor Freudenthal's attempt to fight the federal governments denial of Wyoming's wolf management plan in court. Mockler thinks Wyoming would be better off changing its wolf plan, especially since the state usually has little luck fighting the federal government in court. She thinks they should just make the changes and then implement a liberal hunting policy to address the growing wolf population. Mockler adds that she is disappointed the state is getting ready to take on the federal government, when everyone knows that they can fix the problem.
