Anchorage, Alaska - A ban against aerial hunting is on its way to the state Division of Elections.
The group Alaskans for Wildlife says it will ask the state to certify its petition to stop same-day airborne hunting of wolves and bears. The move is intended to stop state predator control, which was instituted by the Murkowski administration.
Sponsors of the initiative say if it's passed, then it would enact laws similar to ones passed by voters in 1996 and again in 2000. Those restrictions were overturned by the Alaska Legislature.
