Michigan wolf hunt opponents launch another petition drive

LANSING (WKZO) -- A group seeking to stop wolf hunting in Michigan is launching a new petition drive to outlaw the season.

The U.S. Humane Society is seeking to get enough petition signatures to put the issue on the ballot in November 2014, which won't be fast enough to stop this year's hunt.  Others opposed to a wolf hunt include five Native American tribal councils who have told Governor Rick Snyder they object to the hunt for cultural, religious and scientific reasons.

Farmers and lawmakers from the Upper Peninsula argue a hunt is needed, as wolf numbers have been steadily climbing and the animals are no longer protected as an endangered species.
