Man, Not Wolves, to Blame for Problems
Letters to the Editor / Juneau Empire / December 10, 2003
The control of predators for the financial gain of commercialized hunting is lame. It is time for federal intervention to halt the wolf kill.
Man is killing off the environment - that is what is destroying the wildlife, not a wolf hunting to eat. At the risk of being disowned, I can relate to all facts of wanton wildlife carnage. Men who kill for the braggart rights of horns and furs. I have lived in the Northwest corner of North America my entire life and have walked with wolves and cougars my whole life. Fed plenty of both lots of refuse from deer kills.
I see Murkowski and his daughter as detrimental to the Earth's survival. The wanton killing by the logging companies of the 70s and 80s is what killed off the Prince of Wales and other island deer herds. Man is what is destroying the grass- and leaf-eaters, not the wolf. Think about this the next time you vote.
Quit killing God's dogs.
