Game Officials Again Warn of Wolf That's Lost Fear of Humans

Associated Press / February 14, 2008

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - State Fish and Game Department officials are again warning residents to stay clear of Juneau's high-profile wolf.

The black animal some people have dubbed "Romeo" has been seen frequently in the Mendenhall Lake Recreation Area.

Department of Fish and Game officials want people to enjoy the wolf from a distance.

Assistant area wildlife biologist Ryan Scott says his office last week received an increased number of reports of dogs playing with the wolf or of people feeding the wolf.

Scott says people should yell or clap if the wolf gets too near. Scott says dogs should be kept on leashes and not allowed to play with the wolf.

He says feeding the wolf is considered wildlife harassment.
