House Vote Could Preclude Wolf Hunt Referendum

The state senate has passed a bill whose purpose is to legalize wolf hunting in the Michigan.

Gongwer News Service reports that the Scientific Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act is the result of a citizens’ initiative. The groups that backed it say wolves pose a danger to domestic animals. But opponents say those dangers have been exaggerated, and that the issue should go to voters and not be decided by the legislature.

The issue will be on the November ballot if the Michigan House doesn’t act on the bill before September 2.
