Senate Committee Working on Bill to Allow Wolf Hunting

Posted: Updated:

A Michigan state Senate committee is working on a bill to allow a gray wolf hunting season.

The Natural Resources, Environment and Great Lakes committee approved the bill Thursday and now its passed to the Senate, which is recess until November 27th.

If it gets passed then the Natural Resources Commission will establish wolf hunting seasons.

Wisconsin and Minnesota allowed wolf hunting this fall.

Supporters say the wolf population is too big and is dangerous to people and other animals.

But those against the bill say the wolf population is still recovering from extinction and it's too soon to hunt them.
