Michigan Senate bill aims to make hunting gray wolves legal

Posted on November 15th, 2012 No Comments

A new bill in Michigan’s senate is hoping to authorize an open hunting season on gray wolves in the state.

Gray wolves were classified as an endangered species in 1973, when there were only six of them in the wild. Successful protection and recovery efforts have helped the animal’s population rebound and it was removed from the endangered species list this January. However, the proposed law, Senate Bill 1350, will make it legal to hunt these animals.

Proponents of the bill claim that wolves are thinning out the deer population, making things more difficult for sport hunters. With wolf populations at a normal level, hunters should expect the previously unchecked deer population to decrease when compared to decades past. Some argue that killing off wolves is not an appropriate solution to this problem and would prefer changes to the standards surrounding deer hunting.

Another reason this bill is gaining support is the fact that wolves are known to prey on livestock, costing farmers an abundance of money and cattle. Farmers are already allowed to use lethal force against wolves that are killing their livestock if they can show that nonlethal methods have failed. They can also call for assistance from the Department of Natural Resources, which manages Michigan’s wolf population. Additionally, there is a system in place that allows for farmers to be reimbursed for livestock lost to wolves.

Wolves are wild animals, but a neighbor’s husky or other breed of dangerous dog, is not. If you have been attacked by someone’s pet, you may be able to hold them accountable for any injuries their irresponsible ownership brought upon you.
