253,705 Signatures Submitted to Place Wolf Hunting Referendum on 2014 Ballot

More than 2,000 Michigan volunteers rallied to gather signatures in 67-day period

LANSING, Mich. – Keep Michigan Wolves Protected submitted 253,705 signatures to the Secretary of State’s office, that, when certified, will place any plans for a wolf hunting season on hold until Michigan voters decide the issue at the ballot box in November 2014. During a short 67-day period, the coalition far surpassed the 161,305 valid signatures needed to qualify for the ballot.

  1. Such wonderful news!!! Be sure to take the LA Times poll. As of now, 85% are AGAINST hunting wolves!

    Thank you, Nabeki, and bless the wolves!

    • Let’s hope. Seems a lot of legislators aren’t paying as much attention to the polls of the people as they are to the special interests. Look at the current attempts to change gun laws. Up to 90% of the people want some restrictions, yet getting the votes from members of Congress who will be punished by the NRA, gun manufacturers, and the gun “nuts” for voting the wrong way–that is for smaller magazines, no assault rifles, even background checks, will be hard. Unfortunately, even the people who are concerned about harm to people seldom care about the animals hunted and killed by “sportsmen.”

      • I agree, wouldn’t it be nice for a change, for politicians to consider the polls when they vote instead of their wallets. What a fantastic story. Now if we can only get the worst states to follow, like IDAHO, MONTANA, and MINNESOTA.

  9. So many names on the petition to save wolves. It has to have impact with lawmakers. Afterall, we vote, too, because we are Americans.

  10. “We interrupt our regularly scheduled rant against hunters, trappers and wolf-haters to bring you some good news for Michigan wolves” <– I'm sorry, but that is funny!

    Funny introductions aside, this is fantastic! Just comes to show that the majority of citizens in these states care about wolves and do not want them to be hunted!

  11. CNN had Sen.? Imhoff of Oaklahoma commenting on the background check for guns – now, I understand what a sick jerk he is – he is the one that wants to dismember the ESA, among other anti-environment, anti-animal projects – you would think these “people” could find something constructive to do rather than try to kill everything, of course he is a old, white man!

  12. Great news for a change! Wish they could do this in Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. I bet they could with the right leadership. How wonderful. Minnetotans love their wolves. I’ll bet there are a lot of people elsewhere that would sign such petitions and ballot measures. The haters and murderers of wildlife are a minority!

  13. Our Democratic legislators here in Colorado were brave and even when there were death threats they passed new gun safety legislation. We now have expanded background checks and a ban on magazines with more than 15 bullets. Last week, hunters said they are going to boycott Colorado because of these sensible gun laws. We don’t have any wolves here, but I am thrilled that many of the other wildlife in our state won’t be facing hunters’ bullets. I say good riddance!
