DNR to hold wolf forum in Marquette
The federal government says gray wolves in the Great Lakes states are no longer endangered, and they can come off the endangered species list. If that happens, the state would be in charge of managing the wolves.
The Department of Natural Resources is holding a forum in Marquette tomorrow. The DNR’s inviting everyone from the farm bureau to conservation and hunting groups. The agency wants these groups to weigh in on the state’s wolf management plan.
Christopher Hoving is with the DNR. He says the plan would allow officials to shoot problem wolves. For example... if a wolf kills a cow or a sheep.
“It’s not something we like to do or want to do, but we can’t have that behavior of killing sheep be spread throughout the population.”
He says under the state plan, Michigan residents can also kill a wolf that’s attacking their livestock or pets.
