“It’s crucial to Michigan’s future that we respect and honor the fishing and hunting heritage by maintaining a factual, science-based approach,” said state Rep. Andrea LaFontaine, R-Columbus Township, who voted for the bill.


Leadership did not have to take up the proposal, and critics urged them to let it head to the ballot, where it would have competed with referendums on two previous wolf hunt laws that will now mean little.

The debate was heated and the vote close. The measure passed the lower chamber 65-43 as opponents and proponents who had rallied outside the Capitol earlier in the day looked down from the gallery above.

“If they are so certain that this is the correct way for Michigan to go, what do they have to lose by letting the people of the state of Michigan vote?” state Rep. Vicki Barnett, D-Farmington Hills, told about 100 activists at the anti-wolf hunt rally.

“They know they’re wrong, so they’re using loopholes and tricks to circumvent your constitutional rights, and I won’t stand for it.”

Opponents gathered 214,000 signatures for a referendum on a 2012 wolf hunt law, and when the Legislature responded by passing a second law, they gathered another 183,000 signatures for a second ballot proposal. The petition drives were funded primarily by the Humane Society of the United States.

A coalition of hunting and conservation groups then collected some 297,000 valid signatures to send the citizen-initiated bill to the Legislature. It contains an appropriation to fight invasive species, which means it may be immune from future referendum.

Michigan is currently home to an estimated 636 grey wolves, all located in the Upper Peninsula. Voters in other parts of the state shouldn’t make a decision that primarily impacts residents north of the bridge, according to Michael Leonard of the Safari Club International, Lansing chapter.

“The people in the U.P., they’re living with these animals,” said Leonard, who rallied with about a dozen hunters outside the Capitol. “We don’t have wolves down here. We don’t know. We don’t have to deal with it. I don’t think it’s fair for the majority to decide on the minority for what’s happening in the U.P.”

Republican State Rep. Ed McBroom of Vulcan and Democratic Rep. John Kivela of Marquette — both from the Upper Peninsula — spoke in support of the measure on the House floor, citing reported wolf attacks on livestock and dogs.

“Our entire peninsula is being affected and people’s lives are begin affected in a way that’s adverse to our whole culture,” McBroom said, noting lawmakers from around the state came together to approve a bankruptcy settlement for Detroit earlier this year. “We need your help.”

State Rep. Brandon Dillon, D-Grand Rapids, criticized the practice of attaching appropriations to controversial bills to make them referendum-proof and rejected claims that the fight has been about sound science.

Respect the hunters, yes well, what's there to respect??? The so-called hunters are NOTHING but gun-toting, trigger-happy, heartless, gutless killers. They have NO compassion, NO empathy, NO integrity, NO decency and certainly NO MORAL ETHICS whatsoever. The only thing they do have is an over-inflated ego much bigger than their single brain cell. They think NOTHING of deliberately wounding animals and leaving them to suffer and die, in fact, they specifically 'gut-wound' animals on purpose, just so they CAN watch them suffer and die or they set their own dogs onto these injured animals just so they can watch them getting ripped apart and killed. All for 'fun, sport and entertainment' Its a great pity that these so-called hunters don't start hunting each other, preferably into extinction, now that would be a bonus. Good riddance I'd say, to these cruel, brutal low-life pieces of human trash.

Rain hell upon them every day, target them relentlessly and ruthlessly, hold them to ransom if needs be, until they make the decision to stop hunting these precious animals.

Two nights ago we were serenaded by a pack of wolves. I wandered out to listen to them. It's unusual for them to get so close to human habitation (about a hundred yards) but wolves have never been a threat to humans and there seems to be lots of deer in the area for them. There have been no reports of livestock having been killed around here. The wolves are a part of the balance in nature. Sometimes I am ashamed of being a human being. We are a danger to just about every other living species. Thanks for the story Betsy.

Long, long ago, wolves were our enemies - when we had only sharpened sticks for weapons. However, our population has mushroomed over the last century; plus, we have the unfair advantage of guns. There is no justification in killing wolves. The most vicious mammals in the forest have two legs.

Nature is sick and tired of our crap, and it's only a matter of time before She starts to thin our herd. There may be a good reason for the Ebola outbreak--

Carrying capacity is generally defined as the maximum number of a species which can exist over time within the limits of the defined area.
This is an incomplete figure to use for understanding a population and its dynamics for several reasons

-but it is a number upon which active "management" is based.

An approximation of the numbers presently used for the UP is about the claimed present number. (around 650)
Some biologists note that estimates for the UP are higher than the 650 number, having expected it to be past 900, but the wolves themselves split rather evenly before the killing began.

I want you to know that wolves grow up. when they begin to approach cognitive maturity, they, like adolescent humans, become restless, wanting to seek out and make their own lives.
This is so important to a wolf, that he or she will take the 3 to 1 chance that they will not survive, to disperse.

The "science" base for white man's "management" decisions is actually based upon human social tolerance for the wolf.
1. Wolves are perceived to compete with gun hunters. back when human subsistence did not have this tool, indigenous peoples were far more tolerant of wolves.
Unfortunately, in Europe the human population was denser and exploited the environment far more heavily; being keepers of domestic animals (North American natives only domesticated turkeys in the Southwest, and some dogs - these perhaps since before their own migrations to the continent.). Europeans had reasons to feel conflict with wolves, as they had overrun their own carrying capacity. This in fact was the source of the eagerness to colonise).

What you are dealing with is the cultural heritage of a group of humans who feel that they should be the sole exploiters of environments.

The UP and Northern WI and MN are all getting the increased attention od "developeers", and the human populations have increased steadily.

This means that what biologists and behavioral biologists call "social carrying capacity" for wild species is diminishing.

In other news, which I hope to post, it has been shown that the Obama administration - and therefore most demopcrats, do not essentially differ from the republican views on wolves.

Not only wolves, but also every human who recognises that moderation and ethics, and respect for life not under human control has irreplaceable value, are also outgrouped by the entire p[resent society. Both major parties have placed your values as fringe, or radical, or abnormal.

This won't do.

I have no personal plans in which that lack of ethic will be allowed to continue, and I hope you, even with what scientific knowledge you gain, will be able to differentiate between science and such solipsistic self-interest.

Unless the Democratic party can be swayed to reflect your perceptions of ethical sharing of the Earth, that party, too must be abandoned as violently immoral.

That may be the single most asinine reason I have ever heard in support of wolf hunting. Crucial to Michigan's future? In what effing way, lady? Michigan may go down the tubes alright, but not because of no wolf hunting, because of the moronic way you republican fools are managing the state. Geez.

UNLESS AND UNTIL the dominant understand their interdependence with those not dominant, NO CONFLICT RESOLUTION WILL OCCUR.
This statement holds true for both humans and interspecies: human-wolf relationships.

Wolves generally understand their relative position, and seek tolerance by individual humans , whenever they cannot (as when trapped or injured) avoid the too-often dangerous meeting.

Unfortunately, dominant human individuals and groups seem rarely to engage in conflict resolution - it is up to the nondominant to do so. Humans have a tolerant dominance relationship with one another, but generally have a "despotic" dominance relationship with other species.

I do NOT ask that wolf advocates compromise, but instead find ways to reduce the perception that wolf-haters are dominant.

As I have written elsewhere today, even the administration elected by those who believed that it was pro-preservation, antiwar, et cetera, has chosen to act as the nondominant, effectively supporting the false perception of gun-crazed, fearful maniacs, selfish exploiters, and hatemongers, that they themselves are the dominant in this present US and world culture.

Among wolves, coalition is FAR different than among chimps and their extremely close relative, ourselves:
Wolf individuals can and do form personal protective coalition, denying an abusive dominaNT (WITH THEIR LIVES) THE CAPACITY TO CONTINUE THE ABUSE TOWARD THE AFFECTED ONE, WITHOUT CHALLENGING THE DOMINANCE STRUCTURE. THIS IS FOR THE GOOD REASON THAT SURVIVAL OF THE GROUP DEPENDS UPON retention fo the useful skills of the dominant.
In humans, meanwhile, almost all coalition is aimed at supplanting the dominant with the presently nondominant, and altruistic behaviour is abaNDONED ALL TOO OFTEN to achieve this goal of dominaNCE.

(EXCUSE ME FOR ACCIDENTALLY HITTING THE CAPS LOCK KEY AND NOT CORRECTING - IT TAKES FAR TOO MUCH TIME AS THE SUBJECT OF WOLF EXTERMINAtion now seems too important to put off for keyboard problems)

It was on October 15, 2011 where I met Randal (Randy) Massaro (leading animal rights activist) and his wife. This was at the first "Occupy Victorville" in southern California, one that I had organised. What made Occupy unique was that there was no leadership as there was also, no specific issues, other than to expose the lords of finance and industry - those who toy with money and lives, who make the political class, the press and the judiciary jump at their demands and those who destroy the ecosystem for profit. That day, Randy's issue was primarily on protection of the wolves. It now encompasses "all" animal rights and the rights of the American Indian. We should all act like rabid wolves, we should all be a Randy - when it comes to the protection of not just the wolf, but all sentient beings.

Now the population has went up so much they are going into towns and killing farm animals, it used to be farm owners could hunt them on their private property if they were killing the farm animals. This is a sticky situation and many states are battling this same thing. Thanks for sharing Betsy.

Noted. Very sad. Wolves are lovely in the wild. My son used to have a white one as a pet. He was very non verbal but he was loyal and never hurt a human. My youngest son used to walk him in the small town where we lived at one time. He only put a little backpack strap loosely around his neck to walk him to the post
office. My son was in 5th grade. I trusted him. He met my trust. His name was "Wolfie." We loved him.I sat down by him when I met him and picked out a million stickers and foxtails that had gone through his thick coat and penetrated his skin. It took 5 garbage cans full of stickers and fur brushing to clean him up. He stood there the whole time without a sound and let me do that for him. At the end, he turned and looked at me with his beautiful blue eyes and licked my hands. It was the best thing I had ever done for an animal. I was humbled. I hate to know that hunters are allowed to shoot wolves now. They just don't understand. Wolves are just trying to take care of their families.

After all the decades and funds spent on re-populating wolves to their NATURAL habitat, it's a shame that people who like to kill living things, that they don't hunt for food, can exert enough influence ($$$) to be allowed to enjoy their bloody pastime. I can't respect anyone who kills for pleasure. Too sick for me.

Yes it is so terribly sad that there are such ignorant, unfeeling destroyers of our beautiful planets ecosystem.
