Wolf Management Bill On The Move!November 9th, 2012
The wolf management bill is officially moving.
The Senate committee on Natural Resources passed out Senate Bill 1350, which would designate the wolf as a game species in Michigan and authorize a potential future wolf hunting season, on a 5-2 party-line vote.
MUCC has been working on this issue for the past year and is delighted to see the bill move. MUCC President Dawn Levey, who authored a resolution in favor of designating the wolf a game animal at MUCC’s Annual Convention, gave testimony on her extensive experience studying wolves.
Many thanks to Senator Tom Casperson (R-Escanaba) for sponsoring the bill, and to Senators Phil Pavlov (R-St. Clair), Mike Green (R-Mayville), Mike Kowall (R-White Lake), and Arlan Meekhof (R-West Olive) for their “yes” votes during committee.
The bill now moves on to the full Senate. Be sure to contact your Senator and ask them to support sound wolf management in Michigan by supporting SB 1350!
