Ballot Measure 2, Limit Predator Control: "YES"

Our Views on the Ballot Measures

Editorial / Anchorage Daily News / August 26, 2008


Alaskans have twice voted to halt aerial predator control; lawmakers have twice restored it, and Gov. Murkowski took it out of the hands of wildlife professionals and allowed private pilots and gunners to take wolves with permits.

This initiative restores predator control to "last-resort" status, where it belongs, and leaves the killing in the hands of the state's wildlife biologists, where it belongs.

Shooting wolves and bears from airplanes should be the exception, not standard management. Vote yes.
