ROCK LEGEND IGGY POP URGES GOV. SNYDER TO CANCEL WOLF HUNT & LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE
Michigan native Iggy Pop, a music legend and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, has endorsed the "Keep Michigan Wolves Protected" campaign to stop the trophy hunting of wolves and restore the right of Michigan voters to have a say over wildlife policy.. Michigan's first wolf hunt in decades begins Friday, November 15.
In a letter to Michigan Governor Rick Snyder (R), dated Nov. 12, 2013, Pop writes: "As a Michigan native and someone who has cared about animals, both wild and domestic, for as long as I can remember, I was dismayed ..that a bill you signed last May (SB 288) gave Michigan's Natural Resources Commission the authority to decide which animals can be hunted ...which resulted in the first authorized wolf since wolves underwent state protection in 1965."
Pop continues: "To further compound the issue, Mlive.com just unveiled several investigative reports that reveal the state used 'half-truths' and 'falsehoods' to support authorizing a hunting season on wolves in Michigan...The reports make clear that the decision to approve wolf hunting was based on fraudulent information and not sound science.....I am asking all my fans in Michigan to sign up and help gather signatures to reverse this decision and protect the wolves from future hunts......The senseless killing of these majestic animals for sport is a disappointment to the people of Michigan and a stain on it's Government." He called on Gov. Snyder to "do the right thing by staying the hunt and allowing the people's voice to be heard" on the issue.
