Lack of snow and lack of daylight has combined to limit the killing of wolves in Interior game units as part of the state’s aerial predator control program.

As of Thursday morning, pilot-gunner teams with permits from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to shoot wolves from the air or to land and shoot them had reported taking a total of 29 wolves...
 
The state has issued permits to pilot-gunner teams to shoot wolves from the air or land and shoot them in specific game management units for seven years.

Those numbers are high. Puke  I'm glad the weather is preventing them from terrorizing the Wolves. Thumbs Up  Yes, I'm with  you we need to read that headline someday.  Another stone cold barbaric practice.  I don't know how these people sleep at night. Mad

Very glad to hear the killers are having difficulty terminating the wolves. I also don't know how these people sleep at night...what they do is despicable. Mad

"If the wolf is to survive, the wolf haters must be outnumbered. They must be outshouted, outfinanced, and out voted. Their narrow and biased attitude must be outweighed by an attitude based on an understanding of natural processes."
