Young to Miller:  Herd Alaska Wolves to California

roll.com / January 18, 2008


A "Heard on the Hill" item in the Capital Hill newspaper Roll Call details Alaska Rep. Don Young's reaction to California Rep. George Miller's legislation that would outlaw shooting wolves from aircraft - a proposal that is getting support from the group Defenders of Wildlife.

According to the story: "Young proposed a solution that he thinks should satisfy everyone: Instead of passing legislation, just use the money the Defenders of Wildlife raised to herd Alaska's wolves and transport them to Miller's district.

This proposal is a win-win for everyone. and I would suggest my colleagues present it to Defenders of Wildlife representatives roaming the Capital this week,' Young wrote,"

Young has nicknamed Miller's measure the "Wolves are Cute Act."
