A Bay City, Michigan man has plead guilty to killing three wolves in Michigan's Mackinac County. This is the southernmost county in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, just above the Mackinac Bridge that connects the upper and lower. Apparently at least two of the wolves wore tracking collars, and the man removed and destroyed them.
He was sentenced to 365 days in jail with 90 days to be served immediately and the remainder to be suspended if all the terms of his 24-month probation are met. He also incurred the following penalties: $3,000 for restitution for the wolves, $590 for replacement of the tracking collars and $1,500 in fines and court costs. His hunting privileges are revoked for three years and the rifle he used to kill the wolves was condemned.
