Urge Governor Today to Veto SB 1350
Across the United States, more and more states are opening up wolf hunts for the first time in decades. Don't let Michigan be next!
SB 1350, which recently passed the state Legislature, would allow the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to establish an open season on wolves. These animals are making a comeback in Michigan, with population levels rising above 700 in the peninsula area. An open season on wolves will threaten their fragile population.
Across the United States wolves are under siege. In Minnesota, hunters and trappers can kill as many as 400 of the estimated 3,000 wolves there, and in Wisconsin the quota for killing wolves is roughly 24 percent of the state's estimated wolf population. Since wolf hunts began in states such as Idaho, Montana and Wyoming in the past two years, hundreds of these iconic animals have been hunted down and killed, including several wolves from Yellowstone National Park.
Please comment online (select "General Comments" as the issue, and be sure to include "SB 1350" in your comments) or call (517-373-3400) Gov. Rick Snyder today and urge him to veto SB 1350 and protect Michigan's wolves!
For the wolves,
