ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - State wildlife officials say things are looking up for a caribou herd on the southern Alaska Peninsula.
The area where the herd is struggling is under state-sponsored predator control.
Officials with the Department of Fish and Game say at least eight wolves have been removed.
Officials say the pregnancy rate for collared adult cows is 90%.
As of the middle of June, the survival rate was 71% - slightly up from last year.
Officials say the herd in now about 800 animals - 200 more than before predator control.
