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.
