Both of Wisconsin’s U.S. senators support legislation to take the gray wolf off the endangered species list. We talk with a biologist about the criticism of the state’s recent wolf hunt and the back and forth over federal protections. We also talk with a doctor about the potential impact of fentanyl-related bills singed last week by Governor Evers.
