Group Wants Alaska's Parnell to Change Wolf Control Course

The Associated Press / August 14, 2009

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Animal rights group Defenders of Wildlife is seeking a new course on wolf control with Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell.

Defenders says now that Sarah Palin has resigned, Parnell has an opportunity to set a new course for the state and improve the way wildlife is managed in Alaska.

They have asked for a meeting with Parnell and are waiting to hear back.

At issue is the aerial predator control program that allows wolves to be shot from airplanes. Defenders say more than 1,000 wolves have been killed since the program began in 2003. The program supported by Palin also allows for the killing of black and brown bears.
