Senator Casperson apologizes for fictional wolf story

LANSING (WKZO) -- Hunters in Michigan will be able to go after gray wolves for the first time ever this month, thanks to the efforts in part of state Senator Tom Casperson of Escanaba.  The Republican lawmaker, however, apologized on the floor of the Senate for including what's been proven to be a myth about wolves in a resolution two years ago to get the wolves off the endangered species list.

MLive.com investigated the version of the story that an Ironwood woman saw three wolves in her yard in 2010 while kids were outside.  Lori Holm says the real story is the children at her home daycare were inside, there was one wolf near her dog, and she scared it off.
