Outdoor Observations: Many questions surrounding wolf shot in southern Michigan

According to an article from Bridge Michigan, a criminal investigation has been opened in the shooting of a wolf in southern Michigan where a coyote hunter claims the animal was mistaken for a coyote. (Stock photo)

In the last edition of Michigan Outdoor News we reported that a gray wolf had been killed by a coyote hunter in southern Lower Michigan’s Calhoun County.
What made the story so intriguing is that the only known wolf population in the state is more than 300 miles away in the Upper Peninsula. Since wolves remain federally protected under the Endangered Species Act – although many across the state, including me, feel they should be removed from such protections – the claim by the hunter that the wolf was mistaken for a coyote and killed in southern Michigan raised more than a few eyebrows.
