Tweet at Governor Snyder and urge him to veto wolf hunt bill

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. This bill is now on the desk of Michigan Governor Rick Snyder.

Governor Snyder should veto SB 1187. Michigan citizens have stated in no uncertain terms that they do not support the recreational hunting and trapping of wolves. Your voice is needed now to protect Michigan's wolves.
