Judge OK's Aerial Control in 5 Game Management Units

Sean Doogan / KTUU-TV / March 14, 2008

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- An Anchorage judge ruled the state can go ahead with plans for aerial predator control in five game management units.

But Superior Court Judge William F. Morse also ordered the Department of Fish and Game to stop the practice in three other areas.

In those areas, one across the Cook Inlet from Anchorage, and two near Fairbanks, Morse ruled the Board of Game acted too quickly in approving aerial hunting.

State Board of Game officials say they will consider an emergency order, as early as next week, to address the judges concerns.
