Wolf Hunt-9

This Nov. 15, 2013 photo, DNR wildlife research technician Erin Largent shows a tooth taken from a wolf killed by Jeff Powell at the Wakefield, Mich., DNR station. A pro-hunting coalition is launching a campaign to collect petition signatures seeking a possible third statewide vote next November on hunting wolves in Michigan. Citizens for Professional Wildlife Management will ask the state to approve the form of its petition Monday, Dec. 2, 2013. The coalition includes the Michigan United Conservation Clubs and hunting groups. Their measure would let the Natural Resources Commission name game species, protecting Michigan's new wolf hunt. The state says that hunters had killed 17 wolves in the Upper Peninsula through Monday morning. (AP Photo/The Grand Rapids Press, Cory Morse)
