People Hired to Manage Wildlife Know Best How to Do the Job

Letters to the Editor / Anchorage Daily News / January 17, 2004

I am happy to see that the government of the great state of Alaska sees fit to go with the wolf hunting as recommended by the state biologists ("State takes applications for new wolf control effort," Jan. 10), even in the face of Outside interests threatening boycotts!

So who knows best how we should manage our wildlife but the people who are hired to manage it? I think they are certainly doing a better job than some bleeding hearts in Connecticut would have us believe. How many of these wolves do we really need, anyway? We seem to have an overabundance of them in our many parks already.

As for using airplanes, that is the only practical way to hunt them and surely not such an easy way at that. More power to the "fly-boys," and may their aim be true.
