State of Alaska Temporarily Halts Wolf Shooting Program

Associated Press / KTUU-TV / March 20, 2009

FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - State officials have temporarily halted the predator control program near Tok.

Officials had killed 66 wolves from a helicopter, short of the goal to kill 150 wolves. An animal rights group filed a request for an injunction this week, saying the hunt is illegal.

But state officials say that has nothing to do with their decision to put a stop to the aerial killings.

Rather, it's stalled by a lack of snow and money.

Fairbanks regional supervisor David James says the department had $100,000 set aside for the program, and had used about 80% this week.
He says it will take "more money and more snow" to restart the program.
