John Vucetich Explains Why Public Wolf Hunts are Not the Solution

John Vucetich, Michigan Tech associate professor of wildlife ecology and co-director of the Isle Royale Wolf-Moose Study, explains why a public hunt against wolves is not an answer.

Keep Michigan Wolves Protected is a coalition of conservation groups, animal welfare organizations, Native American tribes, wildlife scientists, faith groups, veterinarians, hunters, farmers, and concerned Michigan citizens. The coalition urges Michigan voters to say NO to the wolf hunt by voting NO on Proposals 1 and 2 on November 4th.

    I wish you the very best in trying to stop the wolf hunt in Michigan. The hunt in Wisconsin was, and still is a travesty. I am divested at the torment and suffering of these beautiful animals that keep our ecosystem in check. Wolf Advocate

    it truly is imperative that education is set up in places throughout the states where hunting licenses are sold. a wonderful thing would be that in order to obtain a hunting license a course needs to be taken and passed along with the education. This would educate all license holders on the importance of wildlife in our ecosystem and not killing for the hell of it. We don’t have much left of our wildlife and all the states seem to be looking for more ways to eradicate the wildlife that is so needed by any ecological system. This needs to end and the wildlife that was in place existed way before all the human race took over the land. Ranchers and farmers need to keep their livestock on their property and guard it by nonlethal means instead of just blaming wolves for all the mishaps.

    I think these folks are beyond education. These are the same type of folks that were for slavery. Did education change their minds about slaves being humans ?? That slaves deserved RIGHTS? No! Their bias and prejudice has got nothing to do with education. Its a hatred based on lack of compassion and evil. Only LAWS protecting the wolves and LAWS against poaching will work. Education never ended racism . LAWS did . And so LAWS will end this meaningless wolf massacre…because some minds are beyond education.

      your right. But does anyone else understand that? No. Most people are hunters and just want something to kill. The wolves deserve to live here too.

    Ancestors in England hunted British wolves to extinction. We lost countless beautiful creatures, creatures we can’t see in this country today. Don’t let it happen to the USA.

  19. Auxifur Wolfgram says:

    Whenever i go to take a walk into the wilderness, i always picture seeing a wolf coming up to me and greeting me. But that can never be because my fellow bretherin are being hunted, trapped and killed and can’t be allowed to roam freely as is their nature. This saddens me and needs to stop. :’(
