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.
