Michigan's wolf population, left unmanaged, will expand into the northern Lower Peninsula


Dear Woods-N-Water News:

"The Silence of the Beagles" was heartbreaking. The original wolf management plan submitted to the federal government by Michigan indicated that 200 wolves would constitute a sustainable population. Now Michigan has an expanding, unchecked population of more than 600. Michigan now has more wolves than moose!

In a few years with no control measures in place, packs will become established in the northern Lower Peninsula. They will find the elk herd and there will be more wolves than elk in Michigan. There will be no need for an elk hunting season, the wolves will keep their numbers in check.

The governors of Idaho and Montana have tired of waiting for the federal government to allow their states to manage the wolves that are preying on livestock and decimating the elk herds. The governors have ordered state wildlife agents to kill wolves at their discretion.

Michigan needs to also say enough is enough and take control of the management of its wolves.

Sincerely

Clark B.
