Anti-Hunting Group to Petition at Minnesota Timberwolves Game - 1

Howling for Wolves, an anti-wolf hunting and trapping group, will be the Minnesota Timberwolves’ “nonprofit of the game” for their home opener against the Orlando Magic tonight. 

The group paid $2,000 for a 30-second public service announcement on the Target Center’s big screen — to encourage basketball fans to visit their booth in order to sign a petition to stop Minnesota’s upcoming wolf season, sctimes.com reports.

Other benefits include seating in special sections and 100 tickets to the game.

Timberwolves spokesman Brad Ruiter told the Associated Press that a wide variety of groups have served as the “nonprofit of the game” over the years, and it does not constitute a team endorsement.

What do you think of the Minnesota Timberwolves hosting an anti-hunting group?

I'm not too concerned with the basketball team. It's advertising dollars. What does concern me is this group's disregard for the science of game management and the spread of wolves across that state. The taxpayers are paying for the damage and livestock depredation by the wolves. There has to be a balance between having wolves and other interests in Minnesota.
