Stop "Land-and-Shoot"

Letters to the Editor / Juneau Empire / July 17, 2003


The people of Alaska have twice voted to revoke "land-and-shoot" wolf killing in the last seven years, but certain state officials want wolves killed in order to boost moose and caribou herds for hunters. During a "land-and-shoot" slaughter, hunters in planes or helicopters circle and harass a pack of wolves, and chase them until they exhaust themselves. A hunter then shoots the wolves from the aircraft, or lands on the ice and shoots the terrified wolves as they try to escape in deep snow.

Can you do anything to stop this travesty? This is incredible.
