Wolf Hunt Petition Headed to Michigan Legislature

A third wolf hunt petition is heading to the Michigan legislature.

The Board of Canvassers approved the petition yesterday. Supporters of gray wolf hunting in the U.P., needed to collect 258-thousand signatures to qualify for the ballot... and 297-thousand were valid. The legislature will have 40 days to decide whether or not to pass the proposal.  If voted in favor, it becomes a law, giving the Natural Resources Commission control over hunting-related decisions . If rejected, or nothing is done, the initiative will be up to the voters to decide on the November ballot. Two anti-wolf hunting proposals are expected to appear on the next ballot. The first wolf hunt in the state was held last November and December.
