Wolf Hunt Battle Continues

Opponents of wolf hunting in Michigan say they plan to challenge the latest state law that allows a wolf hunt. The state Legislature, last month, approved a petition drive-turned-law that gives the Natural Resources Commission authority to designate game species. The measure effectively rendered moot referenda designed to ban wolf hunting in the state. But Jill Fritz with Keep Michigan Wolves Protected told Gongwer News Service the recently passed law allowing a wolf hunt violates the single subject requirement because it does three things: allows the Natural Resources Commission to designate game species; provides free hunting licenses for active duty military; and sets aside $1 million to battle Asian carp. Fritz says she does not know when the challenge might be filed, but that it was coming.
