Plans to Avoid Wildlife Crises in Alaska

Letters to The Times / Anchorage Daily News / November 4, 2006

Your editorial "Managing wildlife in crisis mode is bad policy," regarding the recent initiative filed by Alaskans for Wildlife, faults the measure for not allowing airborne wolf control until it is too late. This is precisely what we intended to avoid.

The definition of "biological emergency" clearly says that an action can be taken by the commissioner before there is a crisis. He need only determine that a "wolf or grizzly bear population in a specific area is depleting a prey population to a point that if not corrected will cause an irreversible decline in the prey population such that it is not likely to recover without implementing wolf or grizzly bear control."
