Wolf hunt wrong

July 9, 2013
Tracy Swenson , The Mining Journal

I want to thank this newspaper for publishing my article.

Over a quarter of a million Michigan citizens signed a petition the last time to get the ball rolling on the ballot.

Governor Snyder is very wrong in stating that science will be used in Michigan's wolf policies. There was no science involved in this decision, only politics, which is not the will of the people.

Wolves are not eaten by humans and are therefore not game - this is a trophy hunt.

This legislation was not wanted in state after state where wolves have been listed. Wolf management has led to full-scale massacre of wolves.

It's time for politicians to stop listening to hunters and ranchers and special interest groups and start listening to science and biologists and start managing wolves like regular wildlife policies.
