One Step Closer to Wolf Protection

The Board of State Canvassers certified a second referendum for the November 2014 statewide ballot today, giving Michigan voters the opportunity to protect wolves from trophy hunting. Keep Michigan Wolves Protected initiated two petition drives for the referendum, netting nearly 500,000 voter signatures in the process.KMWP points to multiple DNR reports as support for its stance including that Michigan’s wolf population declined for the second consecutive year and there were only 13 wolf-livestock incidents in Michigan in 2013, a more than 80 percent reduction of such occurrences in the past two years. According to KMWP, wolves also lower the risk of deer-auto collisions and depredations on crops, saving humans lives and tens of millions of dollars for the state.
