Opponents of Wolf Hunting Hold Meetings

Michigan residents opposed to the hunting of wolves are trying for a second time to stop the practice.

The group “Keep Michigan Wolves Protected” held an organizing meeting Saturday and will hold another Sunday in an attempt to force a referendum that stops the hunt of wolves in Michigan.

The meetings were held in Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor, and Dearborn Heights.

The group collected more than 255,000 petition signatures earlier this year for a referendum on a law that designated the wolf as a game species and authorized hunts. However, the Legislature passed another law to make the referendum's outcome null by giving the appointed Natural Resources Commission authority to decide which animals can be hunted.

A news conference will cap off the meetings on Monday in Lansing.
