LANSING, MI (WTVB) -What to do with the state's wolf population is up for debate once again.The Board of State Canvassers will meet in Lansing, where they will take up a referendum petition from Keep Michigan Wolves Protected. The group is seeking to put a measure on the ballot in 2014 to stop the trapping and trophy hunting of wolves in Michigan.

Upper Peninsula state lawmakers say wolf hunts are needed, as the animals are no longer endangered and are causing problems.  Keep Michigan Wolves Protected needs to collect at least 225-thousand signatures to put the issue to a vote next year if the Board of State Canvassers approves the petition language.
