Predator Control the Intelligent Option
to the Editor / Juneau Empire / December 24, 2003
greenies, most of whom have never seen a wolf track, let alone
a wolf, don't like aerial wolf control. Maybe they need to
see seven wolf packs at the 40-mile caribou calving grounds
eating babies as soon as they are born and killing the mothers
for fun. Maybe they need to see a cow moose dragging her entrails
that include her unborn calf with 20 or more wolves closing
in on her.
ecotourists are going to boycott us and that's just fine.
When they come here, their wish is to sabotage our lifestyle;
they want Alaska to become a California-style nature preserve.
Outsider blackmail won't work this time because we finally
have a real Alaskan as governor.
governor is showing common sense and courage, unlike his predecessor.
Intelligent game management includes predator control and
is necessary for the continuation of the traditional Alaskan
lifestyle. Wildlife must be managed as a renewable resource,
food, clothing and an income source for people. Aerial wolf
control is practical, cost-effective when done by the private
sector and it's generally humane.
