EXTREMELY CRITICAL MESSAGE BELOW!!!!  PLEASE FORWARD AND POST ON FACEBOOK AND TWITTER!!!!
WE MUST TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION AND STOP THIS BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!!!!!
Thank you for your hard work and dedication in successfully collecting over 250,000 signatures to protect the wolves through a referendum petition.  Bringing the vote to the people of this state was supposed to determine on whether or not residents would accept the idea of wolves being killed via leg-hold traps for the sole purpose of trophy hunting, after recently being removed from theendangered species list.
After achieving our goal in the last several months, and being exposed to the outside elements in the extreme cold winter, the state government officials are now taking away our rights to vote as taxpayers of this state.
In a malicious power act to remove our rights in bringing this vote to the people, state government officials have introduced a senate bill, S.B. 288, which will be voted on this upcoming Tuesday.  The bill would allow the Michigan Natural Resource Commission to add animals to the list of game species to be sport hunted. Not only does this bill undermine the voice of the voter, but it transfers legislative power over wildlife into the hands of an unelected body, the Michigan Natural Resources Commission.
If this bill passes through the Senate, the House of Representatives and Governor Snyder’s office, the Michigan NRC has every intention on adding cats, mourning doves, dogs and horses to the list of species of game animals to be hunted and trapped without any public input.
It’s not enough that the Michigan DNR, with the approval of the Michigan NRC has already been killing thousands of mute swans across the entire state by shooting, injuring them and then clubbing them to death!!!!!! 
Please, I am asking you to call and write (if possible) before Tuesday, Rep. Tom Cochran (517) 373-0587, Senate Democrat Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer (517) 373-1734. Ask them to vote no on S.B. 288.
Please contact your own State Senator and House Representative, urging them to oppose S.B. 288.
