In a press release from Ludington Police Chief Mark Barnett:
The body of a Ludington snowmobiler has been found. 35-year-old, William Green, was discovered by water rescue personnel Monday in about 5 1/2 feet of water. Green accidentally drove his snowmobile off a 150 foot embankment into Pere Marquette River, Sunday night. He was found 75 yard away from where the accident happen. According to officials, he was unfamiliar with the area. This is the county's first snowmobile accident.
Michigan's first wolf hunt has officially come to an end. The Michigan DNR's website reports that as of 12am, today, 23 wolves were killed since the season opener on November 15th. A target harvest of 43 was set but hunters in the three areas of the U.P. fell short...most likely due to cold weather conditions. Whether the wolf hunt will continue in the future is unknown right now... but the DNR will present a new recommendation to the Natural Resources Commission this summer. The total wolves reported in Michigan, before the hunt, was 658.
