Governor Signs Moose-Hunting Bill

Gov. Jennifer Granholm has signed a bill that could allow moose hunting in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
The state says on its website that the measure was signed this week into law.
An advisory council is expected to conduct a study of the moose population and recommend the number of hunting licenses that should be sold. Such a license would cost $100.
The bill was approved last week by the state Legislature.
A group of scientists had attempted to derail the legislation by sending a letter to the Democrat Granholm to veto the bill. They argued that too little is known about the size of the moose herd and its long-term prospects for survival.
Wildlife managers believe roughly 500 moose wander Michigan's far north.

    On the agenda:
    Next week for our lame duck Gov. the sale of all the water in the Great Lakes to China. Good thing the die hard Liberals can't vote her in again. I'd hate to see what she would do with four more years. I've been so blown away already.
