Managing, Finally

Letters / Fairbanks Daily News-Miner / March 24, 2009

To the editor:

What good news that the Alaska Department of Fish and Game is again willing to do what is necessary to abide by the Alaska Constitution when it comes to managing our wildlife in the Fortymile area. Alaskans voted in support of aerial control efforts, and our governor and ADFG are acting according to this expression of the "will of the people."

The National Park Service, instead of wringing its hands about the fact that wolves must travel outside of NPS unit boundaries onto (managed) state land to find prey to eat, should take a lesson and stop trying to impede scientifically sound management actions by the state.

Outside animal rights groups like Defenders of Wildlife, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and Friends of Animals, should be ashamed of themselves for sacrificing meat on human tables in their never-ending quest for more money. Just last year they were clamoring for ADFG to do the control work instead of private citizens. Now, hypocrites that they are, they are complaining about just that.

Pete Buist, Fairbanks
