Wolf Populations Growing Too Big;
Boycott or Not, They Must be Culled


Letters to the Editor / Anchorage Daily News / December 12, 2003


I have lived in Alaska for 41 years and flown around Alaska for 21 of those years. Since same-day airborne killing of wolves was outlawed, I have seen an incredible increase in the numbers of wolves.

A couple of years ago, I counted 37 wolves in one pack. That number of wolves can take down anything they feel like, including healthy moose or caribou. I also know of people salvaging edible moose from wolf kills that the wolves left.

I say leave the tree-huggers home. If they want to boycott Alaska, then so be it. We don't need them or their money. We will take hunters instead. Let's shoot some wolves!
