Wolf Hunt ban on the ballot but off the table


LANSING (WKZO) --You will get a chance to vote to ban wolf hunting in Michigan this November but your vote won’t count.

The State House has approved a measure that would nullify the referendum and assign the decision whether or not to authorize a wolf hunt to the DNR.

While animal rights groups protested outside, visitors wearing hunters orange watched from the gallery.

The measure derailed two referendums proposing the ban.

Lawmakers voted 65 to 43 in favor, generally along party lines but their were defectors on both sides.

Under the State Constitution, this legislative action does not require the Governor’s signature.
