Legislature’s Flawed Act Won’t Stop Wolf Vote

Michigan’s wolves should not be hunted this year despite the Michigan House of Representatives’ vote in favor of the unconstitutional Scientific Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act . Because the Act will only take effect next year, it provides no authorization for a hunt this year and does not nullify the two referendums on the ballot this November.

Keep Michigan Wolves Protected has committed to challenging the new Act in court.
