McBroom Blasts Gray Wolf Ruling

An Upper Peninsula lawmaker is blasting a federal judge’s ruling that puts the grey wolf back on the endangered species list and bans wolf hunting in the UP, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. State representative Ed McBroom says that Judge Beryl Howell has no idea what they are dealing with in the UP when it comes to the wolf population. The Dickinson County Republican calls the ruling another meddlesome irritation and says the wolf problem is growing across the UP, with farmers losing livestock to attacks, and more and more residents seeing wolves wander into their yards. McBroom called on Attorney General Bill Schuette to go to court to defend the state law that allows the Natural Resources Commission to have the authority to designate game species. He says that law will still be in force this spring, although with the federal ruling, no hunting would be allowed. McBroom is also hoping that the state will challenge the federal ruling to a federal appeals court.
