JUNEAU -- An animal rights group is calling for a tourism boycott of Alaska over last week's decision to remove buffer zones for wolf trapping near Denali National Park.
Friends of Animals president Priscilla Feral says last week's decision by a divided Alaska Board of Game lacked any sense of decency.
She says treating wolves as vermin is an extreme attitude and that her group is taking a drastic step in response. She says Gov. Sean Parnell needs to intervene.
A Parnell spokeswoman did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
Feral says Friends of Animals last used a tourism boycott to protest Alaska's wolf program in the early 1990
