A petition has been certified by the Lt. Governor to once again prohibit the use of aircraft to kill wolves
and bears, except with professionals from Alaska Department of Fish and Game in cases of biological
Alaskan voters banned this practice in 1996 and 2000, but their vote has been overturned twice by the State Legislature.
In 2003-2004, the state implemented five major aerial wolf killing programs resulting in the deaths of 423
wolves to date. These wolf killing programs are intended to last four to five years.
In 2004, the Alaska Board of Game approved same-day airborne grizzly bear killing.
In order to place the measure on the ballot, we need 31,000 signatures by January 6, 2005. Please volunteer today to gather signatures from friends, family members and co-workers.
Or, if you need extra cash for the Holidays, there are also paid positions available.
