"State Postpones Wolf Control"

Post by Tapir » Tue Dec 04, 2012 9:57 pm

Spotted this article and thought I might share it, so I posted it here.
The state has postponed an aerial wolf control program planned for two villages about 200 miles northwest of Fairbanks.

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game says the program for Allakaket and Alatna is being postponed because of a lack of snow for tracking the wolves and legal issues.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that state wildlife biologists were planning sometime in November to shoot as many as 50 wolves from helicopters in a 1,360-square-mile area around the villages on the upper Koyukuk River. Residents there say predators are killing too many moose.

Fish and Game spokeswoman Cathie Harms says the aerial campaign is being pushed back to mid-to late-February.

Let's hope the wolves don't cause too many problems during this postponement.

The area probably won't come out unscathed from the wolves, but if their postponing it and find out the hard way, hopefully they'll learn from it.
