Wolf-Kill Program is Politically Driven

Letters / Anchorage Daily News / February 12, 2006

The Board of Game's controversial wolf-control program is flawed for many reasons, not the least of which is their blatant political agenda. When sound science and the interest of all Alaskans get represented in their decisions, then we may get a true wildlife management plan. Until then we have bad policy getting pushed through the back door, or quickly "fixed" with even more bad policy ("State OK's sale of bear hides," Jan. 31). No wonder the governor feels the need to hire a PR firm for millions of dollars to paint a better picture of the state to Outsiders. The wholesale slaughter of wolves and bears in Alaska will be just another sad hallmark of Gov. Murkowski's legacy.
