The gray wolf was declared an endangered species in 1975 after overhunting decimated their population. After a decades long recovery, their numbers rebounded and they were taken off the Endangered Species List in 2012. Now some states, including Michigan, are considering using hunting as a way to control potential wolf human conflicts.

Current State speaks with Adam Bump, bear and furbearer specialist at the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, about some of the science and rationale behind that decision.
