What Do Michigan Natives Iggy Pop, ‘Frozen’ Star Kristen Bell And The Chippewa Indians Have In Common?
All three urge you to vote “No” on Proposals 1 & 2 this Tuesday and endorse the Keep Michigan Wolves Protected campaign to stop the trophy hunting of wolves and to restore Michigan voters’ rights on wildlife issues taken away by special interest groups and political appointees. In a letter to Governor Snyder, Iggy Pop wrote “Can you truly believe that bringing the wolf back from the brink of extinction only to allow them to be hunted for trophies is the right thing to do?” Read Iggy’s letter to the governor:
Kristen Bell says “The comeback wolves have made could be one of the most miraculous stories in our state's environmental history. I don't want this to end badly for the wolves because of half-truths and falsehoods spread by our elected officials in Lansing to help trophy hunters. This is not the Michigan I grew up in. Let's restore honor and integrity to Lansing and protect our wildlife from future power grabs by voting No on Proposals 1 and 2 this November.” Read Kristen's statement.
The chair of Michigan’s Sault Sainte Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, Aaron Payment, said the wolf is sacred in tribal culture and a wolf hunt is an affront to tribal culture. “In our tradition, in our culture, we believe that the wolf is our brother. And, I don’t mean this to sound very mystical, but in our long-standing tradition, we believe that what happens to the wolf, eventually happens to us.”
