DNR Hears About Cat Hunting

Wisconsin DNR officials are getting a lot of response from the idea of hunting cats, even though they say they're not getting involved in the issue.

The DNR's Deputy Secretary says the conservation congress acts as a citizens advisory board and is separate from the DNR.

A proposal to allow wild cats to be hunted will be voted on next month during conservation congress hearings.

"It's turned into an emotional issue. People reacting very strongly," DNR Deputy Secretary Bill Smith said.

Smith says they'll be interested in hearing what the public has to say about the issue at the hearings.
