Michigan House vote leaves state a step closer to wolf hunt in Upper Peninsula

LANSING< MI – Michigan officials may be allowed to establish a wolf hunt in the Upper Peninsula no matter what happens with a pending statewide referendum on the issue…Wolves have attacked pets and livestock in the three parts of the Upper Peninsula where a hunt might be allowed.  Supporters of Senate Bill 288 say it would allow for establishing hunts of wolves or other species based on science and wildlife management principles…Critics say the new measure moving through the Legislature could take away citizen rights to vote on some types of wildlife issues in the future.
