The fight over wolves is not finished yet

The head of a coalition that opposes hunting wolves in Michigan says the group is still deciding what it's next move will be, but one thing is clear: the fight isn't over.
Another thing appears certain: a wolf hunt is on for later this year.
Jill Fritz, the head of Keep Michigan Wolves Protected, said on NBC 25 Today the controversy and debate over wolves in Michigan is based largely on mis-information.
Her group gathered more than 255,000 signatures seeking a statewide vote on a new law designating the wolf as a game species. But legislators rushed through another measure that would make the referendum meaningless by allowing the Natural Resources Commission to establish a hunt. The commission last month scheduled an Upper Peninsula hunt for Nov. 15 to Dec. 31.
NBC 25 Today is reaching out to pro wolf-hunting advocates to tell their side of the story.
