Canvassers Certify Third Wolf Hunt Measure

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- A measure intended to make moot two wolf-hunting referendums on the November statewide ballot is headed to the Michigan Legislature.

The Board of State Canvassers on Thursday certified that a pro-hunting group turned in enough valid signatures for their proposed voter-initiated law. It would allow the Legislature or the appointed Natural Resources Commission to designate a species as game that could be hunted.

The Republican-led Legislature is expected to approve the measure soon. If it doesn't act, the proposal will go to voters.

Michigan last year held its first wolf hunt since the animal was placed on the endangered species list nearly 40 years ago. Opponents of wolf hunting have collected enough signatures to ask voters to repeal two 2013 laws that cleared the way for the first hunt.
