Bruin Ecological Appearance Rate - BEAR - by County.
We know from this that primary bear voters (analyzed between June and July 15th, annually), have higher turnout than general election bear voters. Technically speaking, we visited high percentages of bait stations across the Northern part of WI.  Yum!  The final week of August, however, is the harvesting period in Wisconsin - the time when our bear-ethren are “purged from the rolls” in the magnitude of 5,000+ per year.  So while we anticipate turnout will be lower this fall, we know that bears will still make their voices heard across the state, and scare the bear-jeezus out of some poll workers.

Kate Dahl is the right choice for Wisconsin families and the bears in their backyards. The dire situation in Wisconsin today gives us paws. Opposing candidate Benjy Messner threatens to endanger our way of life, and his sudden absence leaves us fishing for answers.

The Berenstein Group is Wisconsin’s premiere Jewish ursine lobbying and advocacy group, striving to amplify the voices of Jewish bears and their families. “Out of the forests, into the streams!”

It’s on, everybody! We’re excited to announce a new coalition here in Wisconsin of mammals united for a strong, pro-family, pro-bear culture. This means supporting our favorite candidate, Kate Dahl, for Wisconsin Senate this weekend. 

Oh boy, what’s in that garbage can over there? More later.
