Trooper Who Caught Accused Wolf Poachers Should Get Commendation

Letters to the editor / Anchorage Daily News / November 14, 2004

It will be very interesting to see how the state handles the case of David Haeg and Tony Zellers, the two men charged with killing at least nine wolves outside the predator control area, one 80 miles outside, leaving wolves to rot after killing them, and catching wolverines out of season ("Aerial wolf hunters face charges," Nov. 10).

Wildlife trooper Brett Gibbens, who pieced together the case based on his knowledge of the area wolf packs, and while on his day off spotted a wolf kill site well outside of the predator control area, should be given a commendation. Instead, given the incestuous political baggage of the governor and the Board of Game, I would imagine he will be reassigned. Trooper Gibbens, thank you. From everyone who believes that no one is above the law.

We will be watching.
