Aerial Wolf Control Program in Alaska Set for Court Again

Chris Joy / KTUU / NBC / January 28, 2006

Anchorage, Alaska - The fight over the state's Aerial Wolf Control Program is set for another round in court.

Friends of Animals, the group trying to put a halt to the program, asked for a temporary restraining order Friday. They're also asking for a temporary injunction to keep the planes grounded. On Monday the group will seek a meeting with a judge.

Their lawyer says earlier this week, the Board of Game came up with 77 new pages of regulations, but officials with the Board of Game say the revisions were to satisfy the judge's request for more details on the program.

The program's goal of killing about 400 wolves has not changed.
