Casperson ignores voters on wolves

Sen. Casperson and his cronies continue their vendetta on wolves.

Senate Resolution 105 passed through an unelected committee, where Casperson is the chairman, and will very soon be on the Michigan Senate floor. This resolution urges the federal government to take wolves off the Endangered Species List, even though the population has declined from 687 in 2010 to 618 in 2016, and leave it up to Michigan for “scientific” management.

There is nothing “scientific” about the management of wolves in Michigan — it means “hunt,” plain and simple, through any cruel means deemed “scientifically” necessary: traps, snares, hounding, etc. All for the sole purpose of putting wolf heads on walls and fur coats on women. (I am sure that the wolf hides are sent overseas, as 99 percent of American women would not be caught dead in one.)

SR 105 blatantly circumvents Michigan voters who voted against wolf hunting twice in the 2014 election. Is voting in Michigan redundant when our Legislature simply ignores its constituents? It would seem so. Plus, do we want our taxpayer dollars to continually fund the Casperson vendetta? (We have been funding it since 2011.)

Very soon, SR 105 will be voted on by the state Senate. Please email and call your state senator, telling him to uphold the will of the people and vote no on SR 105 when it comes before them on the state floor.
