Michigan Senate to vote on pro-hunting initiative

Lansing, Mich. The Michigan Senate is expected to pass legislation to keep intact the state's power to allow wolf hunts.

The initiated bill submitted by hunting groups is designed to override two referendums on the November ballot backed by groups that oppose hunting the once-endangered gray wolf in the Upper Peninsula.

The Natural Resources Commission scheduled the first wolf hunt in decades under authority granted by the Legislature last year. But that law and an earlier one are on hold pending the November statewide vote.

Opponents of wolf hunting say the Legislature should ignore the legislation and let the voters decide in three months. But proponents of the wolf hunt in the Republican-led Legislature say decisions on hunting are best left to state experts based on science.
