This November, vote NO on Proposals 1 and 2 to end the unnecessary wolf hunt in Michigan and stop politicians and special interest groups from usurping power from the voters.

Anti-wolf hunt expert to speak at 2 universities

Wolf expert opposed to state hunt to speak at Wayne State, Grand Valley universities

DETROIT (AP) — An expert who opposes the Michigan wolf hunt speaks this week at two Michigan universities.

John Vucetich’s talk is entitled “The Truth About Michigan Wolves: Deconstructing the Myth.” The Isle Royale Wolf-Moose Project co-director speaks Friday at Detroit’s Wayne State University and Saturday at Allendale’s Grand Valley State University.

Ballot Questions Not The Final Word On Wolf

Michigan voters will get to weigh in on two laws that allowed wolf hunting in the Upper Peninsula.

The Humane Society just started airing ads aimed at persuading voters in the closing days of the campaign season. But whether people vote “yes” or “no” on wolf hunting, the two ballot questions are not the final word on the issue.

The Michigan Public Radio Network’s Rick Pluta explains.

LETTER: Vote ‘no’ on Props 1 & 2

This election is crucial.

Send a message to Lansing that you will not be silenced. Your century-old rights could be erased if Proposal 2 passes.

Editorial: Just settle the debate — vote on Proposals 1 and 2

Wildlife advocates and hunting rights activists need to hear from voters

A subsequent initiated statute supported by hunting rights advocates was passed by the Legislature and would make these referendums moot by reaffirming control through the NRC. Still, wildlife advocates say they plan to go to court to make constitutional arguments against the Scientific and Professional Wildlife Management Act.

Letter: Vote no on Propositions 1 and 2 to protect wolf population

The fight to keep Michigan’s wolves protected has been a long one, and this November it will finally be in the hands of the voters. The small group of sportsmen and politicians who support the wolf hunt have tried to take this vote away from the people. Now, they also want to take away any vote related to wildlife and leave all of the decision-making in the hands of a small, politically appointed committee with no scientific background.

OPINION: Bears and wolves find a voice in the wilderness

If politicians preying upon your attentions this season fail to inspire, you might seek common cause with the beasts — the four-legged variety rather than those running for office.

Ballot initiatives aimed at protecting bears and wolves from hounding, trapping and other inhumane hunting practices are up for a vote in two states — Maine and Michigan.

Michigan voters will consider two harmful wildlife measures on November 4th

On November 4, Michigan voters will have an opportunity to weigh in on two measures— Proposals 1 and 2—that, if passed, would harm the state’s small, vulnerable wolf population and prevent the public from weighing in on important wildlife protection and management decisions.

Jill Fritz: The case against Props 1 and 2

This November, Michigan voters will find two referendum proposals that, if passed, would strip voting rights and declare a trophy hunting season on wolves. But, we’re confident that when Michiganders review the facts carefully, they’ll say “no” to the trophy hunting of wolves and “no” to this power grab to take away their voting rights.
