But before it can kill the wolves, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service need input from the public. Friday Fish and Wildlife presented its draft assessment of Unimak Island wolf and caribou issues.

The feds have not selected their preferred method yet.

Public comments are due by Jan. 31

Feds ok aerial wolf hunt on ak's unimak island

the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is out with an environmental assessment on wolf and caribou management on the 1,571-square-mile island.

It endorses the state's original plan, and offers four options for dealing with a shrunken Unimak caribou herd. One option is the "no action" alternative required in all environmental assessments. The other three involve gunning wolves in one way or another -- from helicopters, from airplanes or from the ground. Environmentalists are predictably outraged. The Center for Biologist Diversity has initiated a letter-writing campaign.

TAKE ACTION!  Save the Unimak Wolves

"Federal officials at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have proposed killing half the wolves on Alaska's Unimak Island with cruel measures like aerial hunting and gassing pups."

Petition:  care2

Why, you might ask?    Aerial Hunt Targets Unimak Wolves Under Guise of Protecting Caribou

This is a monumental mistake where we have the voices needed to prevent it from taking place.

Feds Say 'No Action' Best for Unimak Wolves, Caribou--

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game says it’s appalled by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife’s decision to not allow any action to be taken to protect the caribou herd on Unimak Island. 

The state wants to use a helicopter to selectively target wolves preying on caribou calves, but the problem is that the calving grounds lie on a National Wildlife Refuge.

Nearly 100,000 people submitted comments on the environmental assessment.Clapping
