HSHV endorses the "Keep Michigan Wolves Protected" campaign

Please sign the petition located at HSHV

wolvesThe Humane Society of Huron Valley is endorsing the Keep Michigan Wolves Protected campaign and we will be collecting signatures.

Keep Michigan Wolves Protected is seeking to collect more than 225,000 signatures of Michigan voters to place a referendum on the ballot. These signatures must be collected quickly – before the deadline of March 20, 2013.  If successful, a proposal will
appear on the Michigan statewide ballot in 2014 that would allow voters to choose whether or not to enact the legislature’s wolf hunting law.

There are fewer than 700 wolves in Michigan and their numbers are only now starting to recover.  People don't eat wolves, and it's just pointless trophy hunting for no good purpose. Wolf hunting may involve especially cruel and unfair practices, such as painful steel-jawed leghold traps, hunting over bait, and even using packs of dogs to chase down and kill wolves.

In December 2012, after Michigan state politicians rushed a 'lame duck' bill through the House and Senate, Governor Snyder signed legislation into law that would designate wolves a "game" species and authorize the Natural Resources Commission to establish a hunting season.

Signature Collection Dates and Times at HSHV:

  • Saturday, Feb 2 – 11 am to 5 pm
  • Sunday, Feb 3 – 11 am to 5 pm

HSHV is located at 3100 Cherry Hill Rd., Ann Arbor – 48105

Please check back to our website as we will post for more dates and times. Thank you.
