Michigan voters reject laws favoring wolf hunting

In largely symbolic referendums, Michigan voters have rejected two state laws that allow hunting of gray wolves.  One measure removed the wolf from the state endangered list and classified it as a game species.  The other empowered the appointed Natural Resources Commission to decide whether wolves should be hunted.  The outcome of Tuesday’s election voids both laws.  But the Legislature passed yet another pro-hunting bill this summer that will remain in effect.
