Activist campaigns for anti-wolf hunt measures
LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The president of the Humane Society of the United States is visiting Michigan to support ballot initiatives designed to stop wolf hunting.
Wayne Pacelle is joining other activists Tuesday at the state Capitol in Lansing to ask that voters be allowed to decide the wolf hunting issue in the election this November.
Pacelle also plans to meet volunteers and potential voters in the Kalamazoo area.
Hunting opponents have gathered enough petition signatures to force two statewide referendums on whether to repeal laws that could allow wolf hunting. But hunting supporters have collected their own signatures in favor of letting the appointed Natural Resources Commission make the decision.
If the Legislature approves that measure, the fall referendums will be moot. If not, voters will see three wolf-related measures on the ballot.
