Wolves have been declared a game animal by the State SenateMARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News)The State Senate has taken a step toward holding the state’s first-ever modern day hunting season for gray wolves.

The upper-chamber yesterday voted to designate the wolf as a game animal. And while the legislation doesn’t create a wolf hunting season, if passed, it would allow the state’s Natural Resources Commission to authorize a hunting season if it wanted to do so.

The measure also calls for the creation of an advisory council that would annually make non-binding recommendations about wolf management practices in Michigan.

Gray wolves were removed from the federal endangered species list just under a year ago.  The legislation now goes to the state House.
