ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- The Alaska Board of Game narrowly voted Friday to eliminate the wolf protection buffer zone around Denali National Park. Environmentalists are speaking out against the move, but board members defend the decision.

It's a passionate issue, with no buffer zone between hunters and wolf supporters.

The board also voted to put a moratorium on the issue, so it won't come up again for another six years.

more here and video report w/wolf footage; one howling in the middle of the road

they'll still be wolves to see?  the fact that they can be seen so easily is what gives the wolves an unfair disadvantage.

Denali's Wolf population is halfed and they eliminate the buffer zone. Confused  Why is there no sanctuary.  I wonder how much of this new development has to do with Haber's death?  I think he was truly their guardian angel there. Broken Heart

I enjoyed the howling by the middle of the road Wolf. Love

I think you are right about Haber, Nakoowolf.

I was reading about FOA President showing up and even she said no one can fill his shoes.

"Priscilla Feral spent a full day flying to Fairbanks from Connecticut to speak before the Alaska Board of Game for five minutes on Saturday, even though she doesn’t think it will do any good.

It was the least she could do for Gordon Haber."

From:  Denali's Wolves:  A History of Loss

"The wolves in Denali are believed to be the first and longest studied group of wild wolves in the world. Until more recent years in Yellowstone National Park, they were also the most viewed wolves, seen by hundreds of thousands of visitors. Often they are seen loping along the Park road, sometimes carrying a snowshoe hare or caribou leg.

If you are lucky, you may get to see a moose or caribou kill. These extraordinary viewing experiences are threatened by a handful of trappers who set gauntlets of traps just along the border of the Park. Denali's wolves are especially vulnerable to trapping and hunting due to their tolerance of human presence. As a result, the history of several wolf families seen along the Park road is a history of loss."
