Michigan’s wolves should not be hunted this year despite the Michigan House of Representatives’ vote in favor of the unconstitutional Scientific Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act . Because the Act will only take effect next year, it provides no authorization for a hunt this year and does not nullify the two referendums on the ballot this November.

Keep Michigan Wolves Protected has committed to challenging the new Act in court.

Have you ever signed a petition because you wanted your voice heard? The outcome you expected was to have a vote on an issue you felt strongly about.

I have.

I have helped put wolf hunting before the citizens of Michigan twice.

The first time the Michigan legislature took away my voice by passing a bill that negated any chance of my vote being counted.

This year, the Senate did that again and the House is heading in the same direction.

The Michigan Senate once again thumbed its nose at Michigan voters by approving the so-called Scientific Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, rather than allowing it to appear on the November statewide ballot. It’s the latest in a series of political shenanigans to undermine the right of Michigan citizens to vote on the issue of wolf hunting. The Michigan House of Representatives is expected to take up the issue this Wednesday, Aug. 27.
