A group called “Keep Michigan Wolves Protected,” has challenged the legality of the law Michigan has for regulated wolf hunting.
Michigan’s regulation on wolf hunting still belongs to the experts after the Keeping Michigan Wolves Protected group filed a lawsuit claiming that the law violates the Michigan Constitution.
The courts ruled against the group and the law was left as is, meaning sportsmen are still able to go wolf hunting. The Michigan United Conservation club was delighted that their hard work paid off.
The court recognized that the Scientific Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act was about just what its title says, managing fish, wildlife and their habitats with sound science.
The state approved of the Scientific Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act back in August of 2014 and it gives the Michigan Natural Resources Commission the authority to classify animals as game species.
Michigan’s first wolf hunt was held in 2013, after legislation placed wolves on the games species list effectively removing the hunting ban on them.
Interestingly, this wolf protection group is or was funded by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) which is responsible for many attacks on hunting rights and laws.
