TV Spots Urge Michiganders to Vote NO on Proposals 1 and 2

Lansing, MI - Keep Michigan Wolves Protected has launched two TV commercials urging Michiganders to stop the trophy hunting of wolves and stop the power grab by politicians, by voting NO on Proposals 1 and 2 on November 4. The commercials will run statewide for the final two weeks through Election Day.

The TV commercials remind voters that politicians and state officials exaggerated and even fabricated stories about wolf encounters with people in Michigan to justify opening a trophy hunting season on the state’s small and fragile wolf population,” said Jill Fritz, Director of Keep Michigan Wolves Protected. “Then they tried to take away our voting rights so the people of Michigan won’t have any say on wildlife issues. Voters should say NO to the trophy hunting of wolves and say NO to the dirty tricks by politicians and special interests, by emphatically voting NO on Proposals 1 and 2.”

Keep Michigan Wolves Protected is a coalition of conservation groups, animal welfare organizations, Native American tribes, wildlife biologists, faith groups, veterinarians, hunters, farmers and concerned Michigan residents.
