LANSING (WKZO) -- Organizers of a petition drive to put a ban on wolf hunting on the Michigan ballot in 2014 have the green-light to move forward with collecting signatures.

The Board of State Canvassers has approved the petition language.  The group Keep Michigan Wolves Protected has just over 60 days to collect 255-thousand valid signatures to put the issue to a vote.

State lawmakers approved wolf hunting in the Upper Peninsula after the animals came off the endangered species list.
