Alaska Board of Game Votes to Expand Aerial Gunning Program

Up to 900 Wolves are Slated to be Killed


Defenders of Wildlife / November 16, 2004

The anti-conservation Board of Game has just voted to allow up to 900 wolves to be killed by the barbaric practice of aerial gunning. This is six times as many as were killed last winter. The Board also voted to expand the killing zone to 50,000 square miles.

This ruthless massacre of wolves this winter will begin as soon as the snow is deep enough.

Extremely dark days of deadly actions against wolves have settled in on Alaska. Already, to date:

-147 wolves have been killed by aerial gunning

- The area where wolves can be hunted and killed has grown exponentially. Wolves in more than half the state are now vulnerable

- In some areas, the number of wolves that can be killed has gone from 10-a-year to 10-a-day

- Over the five-year period planned for aerial gunning thousands of wolves could be killed.

- Aerial gunners this year will be allowed to kill pregnant females

We need to act now to stop the ruthless killings of Alaska's wolves.

Please help support our efforts to Save America's wolves and call Governor Murkowski's office at 907-465-3500 to express your outrage today.
