Senate Bill 1350 was passed today in Michigan, by The Natural Resources, Environment, and Great Lakes Committee and now wolves have been removed from the protected non-game animal list in Michigan. This means that now there is a possibility that there could be a hunting season for wolves here. Many here in the Upper Peninsula are for hunting wolves. I am not. Although the wolf population up here has maybe stabilized a little bit, I still don’t think that they should be hunted. Also, people are now allowed to shoot them if they think they pose a threat to them or their pets, livestock, etc. There have been complaints that they’re a problem, but I really don’t see that. I haven’t heard anything about wolves being a nuisance in this area. I don’t think that 700 for the whole entire U.P. is a lot. Their population doesn’t need to be controlled at all. I feel as though that with hunting, it’s an alright thing if the population needs to be controlled, like deer, for instance. And I’m pretty sure that deer up here out number wolves at least two to one. That’s another thing hunters have been complaining about, that the wolves are killing too many deer. The thing is, is that I don’t believe they have any scientific reasoning behind this. I dunno. I just feel as though, that with this being passed that if a hunting season for wolves does come about, that the population will once again dwindle and then they become extinct from up here all together. Also, I just like wolves, I guess, and I don’t want to see them being hunted and stuff. Whateva.
