NEW YORK—The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) has filed a brief as amicus curiae ("friend of the court") in Dane County Circuit Court (Wis.) in support of the Wisconsin Federated Humane Societies, Inc., Wisconsin citizens and other conservation and animal welfare organizations in their lawsuit against the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The brief, which was filed by the ASPCA’s Legal Advocacy department on November 21, asks the Court to prohibit the DNR from authorizing the use of dogs for wolf hunting unless and until restrictions are enacted that conform to state law.
