Michigan's gray wolf population is estimated to be 687 animals. The recovery goal for the population is between 250-300 wolves.

The group Keep Michigan Wolves Protected has filed language with the Secretary of State to put another petition on the 2014 ballot. The group wants to ban wolf hunting in Michigan.

If the language is approved, the group will try and collect more than 160 thousand signatures to put the question to voters.

Rick Pluta, the Lansing Bureau Chief for the Michigan Public Radio Network joined us today to discuss what this new ballot will do.

Listen to the full interview above.
