A Milwaukee-based environmental organization has filed an intent to sue both the federal government over their beaver management practices in Wisconsin.
Superior Bio-Conservancy is a nonprofit environmental organization working to protect water systems in the Great Lakes Region. They say that Wisconsin’s decade-old beaver management plan is outdated and unnecessarily kills thousands of beavers every year.
And, Superior Bio-Conservancy is threatening to sue the government agency that carries out the program – the US Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services Division.
