MADISON, Wis. -- Animal rights proponent Patricia Randolph says she plans to give up her Dane County seat in the Wisconsin Conservation Congress.

Randolph was elected in 1999 to the group, which advises the state Department of Natural Resources on outdoor sporting issues such as hunting, trapping and fishing.

Anybody, whether they hunt or fish, can vote at the organization's annual spring meetings. The meeting at which Randolph was elected was attended by hundreds of people opposed to hunting whose votes put her into office.

Randolph spent her time with the organization seeking to change policies so nonhunters have a greater say in how the state's wildlife are managed.

She said Monday she will move near the end of the month to a farm near Briggsville in Marquette County, where she hopes to establish an art and nature study center.

Although she said she will no longer serve on the Conservation Congress, she said she will remain active in issues related to wildlife management.
