Group Opposed to Wolf Hunt Asking NRC to Delay Decisions
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) –The group hoping to overturn the state’s wolf hunting law at the ballot box in November 2014 is asking the Natural Resources Commission to delay making any decisions on that hunt until after the vote.
Jill Fritz, director of Keep Michigan Wolves Protected, says Michigan’s 7.4 million registered voters would be discounted if the NRC doesn’t respect the will of the people. She adds that legislative chicanery must not allow democratic principles to be circumvented and place Michigan’s fragile wolf population at risk.
The NRC’s Policy Committee on Wildlife and Fisheries may take possible action on a wildlife order at the commission’s regular meeting today.
