Friends of Animals May Mean Well
Thinking is Disneyish
Letters to the Editor / Anchorage Daily News / January 1, 2004
control is a win-win deal! Although Friends of Animals
and Priscilla Feral may be well-intentioned emotionally,
they are sadly ignorant of the facts. They seem to wish
that the wilderness was more like a Disney film than the
actual wilderness it is. Predators and prey (which have
always included humans in that relationship) spend the
majority of their time either hunting or being hunted and
savagely killed. Friends of Animals do a huge disservice
to wildlife in general and to the uninformed American populace.
Priscilla claims that wolves and humans are "sentient" animals.
They are, and in case she hasn't noticed, wolves feel perfectly
natural, as the beautiful killers they are, when they rip
the entrails out of moose and caribou adults and calves.
Every state has a fish and game management department. Their role is to try and
limit the "natural swings" in all populations for the benefit of wildlife and
man. As long as wild habitat is protected, all species of wildlife will do well.
Predator or prey control through changes in fish and game regulations and habitat
protection and improvement will benefit all wildlife.
A reduction in wolves around McGrath will ultimately assist in increasing the
moose population, and that will be followed by an increase in the wolf population.
