Letters: Vote ‘no’ on Proposals 1 and 2

In 2013, over 255,000 Michigan voters signed a petition to oppose a wolf hunt and put the issue on the 2014 ballot. Instead, a law passed silencing their voices.

A commission of political appointees would make decisions based on half-truths and misinformation to justify a trophy hunt. Even the Department of Natural Resource’s Wolf Digest states “a wolf attack on a human being has never been documented in Michigan.”

Farmers losing livestock to wolves are financially compensated. It’s legal to kill wolves threatening livestock, pets or humans.

Vote “no” on Proposals 1 and 2; restore wolf protection and voters’ involvement in wildlife issues.
