Aerial wolf hunting continues to be a contentious issue in the state with opponents protesting in Sitka today.

The wolf kill program currently underway near McGrath and the Nelchina Basin is being used to boost moose populations.

Friends of Animals, a Connecticut-based group is organizing today's protest. The group is asking people in Sitka to sign postcards telling Gov. Murkowski that they do not support the program. The animals rights group says until Alaska changes its policy it will continue to call for a tourism boycott of the state.

The group sponsored about 30 protests nationwide last month and says they have about another 20 scheduled for this month.
