Alaska Fish and Game Reaches Limit in Wolf Control Program Near Aniak

Maria Downey / KTUU / April 3, 2006

Anchorage, Alaska - One of the state's most controversial programs has reached a target goal.

The Department of Fish and Game announced today the state has reached its limit on wolf kills for the three-year aerial wolf control program. The state reports that 62 wolves were killed in the unit near Aniak, with 47 of those were killed from the air, while the others were trapped. The goal was to reduce the number of wolves from about 120 to about 53.

Animal rights groups continue to protest the program and the fact that the state plans to kill another 400 wolves this year.
