Michigan Radio: Tribes oppose bills to create wolf hunt in state
Posted: Wednesday, November 14, 2012
"We reported last week that Michigan lawmakers are considering legislation to make gray wolves a game species (State Representative Matt Huuki (R-Atlantic Mine) introduced HB 5834. Senator Tom Casperson (R-Escanaba) introduced a similar bill (SB 1350) in the state Senate). These bills would make it possible to have a hunting and trapping season for wolves.
SB 1350 cleared a Senate committee late last week. It now moves to the full Senate.
But a number of tribes in Michigan are opposed to a wolf hunt and that could hold the process up. "
