Killing Wolves to Help Environment? Not Likely

Letters to the Editor / Anchorage Daily News / January 28, 2005


I'm not usually an outspoken conservationist. I've been an Alaska homesteader and lived off the land. The wolf killing that is again being promoted is still as sad and ridiculous as ever, transparent as being manipulation for revenue increases from hunters.

I wonder what numbers of people really complain because they can't locate moose, instead of there being a true shortage for subsistence. To say that wolves decimate moose and caribou numbers is a crock. Wolves do what they have always done, gleaning the old and sick from herds for the most part, taking only what they need. I don't believe in a lot of what animal rights activists from all over preach, but about wolves and bears being killed for "environmental reasons" according to the state departments involved, tell it to someone else, I'm not buying it.
