After much back and forth, wolf hunting is once again legal in Michigan.
Don’t grab your rifle just yet. Wolves are still on the federal endangered species list, so the law won’t take effect until they’re removed.
A 2014 state law allowing wolf hunting was recently struck down by the Michigan Court of Appeals on a technicality.
At the polls, voters have said “no” to similar legislation multiple times.
Jill Fritz is the director of Keep Michigan Wolves Protected.
“We’re appalled at the open contempt for Michigan voters that Governor Snyder demonstrated by signing this third wolf hunting bill into law.”
Proponents of the legislation say it’s needed to deal with the wolf population in places like the Upper Peninsula.
