Some Connecticut protesters traveled all
the way to Alaska this weekend to protest the state's lethal
wolf control program.
Darien-based Friends of Animals organized the protest.
The group is asking people shopping there to sign postcards
telling Alaska Governor Frank Murkowski that they do not
support aerial wolf hunting in Alaska.
The animals rights group says until Alaska changes its
policy it will continue to call for a tourism boycott of
the state, and keep protesting.
Alaska currently has two programs under way to kill wolves
to boost the moose populations around McGrath and the Nelchina
Friends of Animals president Priscilla Feral says the group
intends to keep the pressure on until Alaska does away with
the programs. More than 20 protests are scheduled this month
for around the country.
