Alaska's Wildlife Policy Will Prove Costly

Letters to the Editor / Juneau Empire / January 18, 2004

I am writing in response to the Alaska aerial wolf kill and bear removal program. I am a member of the Canadian Firearms Association and, let me tell you, there are a lot of mad ethical hunters from here who would like to see Gov. Murkowski's head in a sling. This practice is archaic and must never be done.

The moose and caribou population will naturally level out to what it is suppose to be. To game-ranch these wild animals is wrong. With your eco-tourism industry at risk, the wolves and the bears are worth six times more alive then they are dead. Think about it. You're quite likely destroying your economy for your supposed anthropocentric "rights." There is no love or respect in the murdering of these wolves and the world knows it
