Dr Rolf Peterson, lead biologist on Isle Royale for decades, comments on whether Michigan should allow hunting of gray wolves in the state’s Upper Peninsula. Michigan ABC 10 News reports “He doesn’t believe the wolf population poses any real public safety threat to residents in the U.P. Peterson says as long as you aren’t leaving garbage or other food out that wolves can get into…you shouldn’t have a problem.
