Kristen Bell, Actress and Michigan Native, Urges Residents to Vote NO on Proposals 1 and 2 to Protect Wolves

LANSING, MI - Actress, singer and Michigan native Kristen Bell has endorsed the Keep Michigan Wolves Protected campaign to stop the trophy hunting of wolves and the power grab by politicians. She urges Michiganders to vote NO on Proposals 1 and 2 on November 4. Bell said in a statement:

“As a Michigan native, I appreciate the beauty and wilderness that exists in the Upper Peninsula, which is home to fewer than 650 gray wolves. After being hunted almost to the point of extinction, they are part of the ecosystem again but that progress is being threatened. The comeback wolves have made could be one of the most miraculous stories in our state's environmental history. I don't want this to end badly for the wolves because of half-truths and falsehoods spread by our elected officials in Lansing to help trophy hunters. This is not the Michigan I grew up in.  Let's restore honor and integrity to Lansing and protect our wildlife from future power grabs by voting No on Proposals 1 and 2 this November.”

Bell, 34, gained fame for her title role in the TV series Veronica Mars. She voiced Princess Anna in Disney’s Frozen, the highest grossing animated film of all time. Bell grew up in Huntington Woods and is a graduate of Shrine High School in Royal Oak.

Last November, on the eve of Michigan’s first wolf hunting season, Michigan native and rock legend Iggy Pop sent a letter to Gov. Rick Snyder in which he wrote: “The senseless killing of these majestic animals for sport is a disappointment to the people of Michigan and a stain on its government.”

On November 4, residents can stop the trophy hunting of wolves in Michigan and stop the power grab by politicians to take away their voting rights by voting NO on Proposals 1 and 2.

In the 2014 general election, Michigan voters soundly rejected two referendums on the trophy hunting and trapping of the state’s small population of wolves. But now, the Michigan legislature has rushed through another bill, SB 1187, to once again designate wolves as a game species to be hunted and trapped—in spite of that public rejection of an almost identical measure at the ballot box just two years ago...
