LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Board of State Canvassers has approved a petition form that a group will circulate in support of having a 2014 statewide vote on whether to allow wolf hunting.
The commission added the gray wolf to the list this week and scheduled a hunt for November 15th through December 31st. It said up to 43 wolves in seven U.P. counties could be killed.
