FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - The state Department of Fish and Game has established a hot line and e-mail mailing list to keep local residents up-to-date on the wolf front in Two Rivers and North Pole, or any other populated areas where wolves are spotted.
The hot line number is 907-459-7308. Officials say it will be updated each time the department gets a new report of a verified sighting or incident.
The department also is creating a mailing list or listserv on the Internet so people can become subscribers and post their own versions of wolf activity around Fairbanks that can be sent to other subscribers.
A pack of wolves is believed to have killed and eaten at least three dogs in the Two Rivers/east North Pole area in the past two months.
Several residents in both areas also have reported wolf sightings, tracks and howling during that time.
