Did Moose That Became Entangled in Electric Line Really Have to Die?

Letters to the Editor / Anchorage Daily News / February 12, 2004

I would like to know why the state can only tranquilize a moose when it wants to obtain information or place a collar on it, but can't tranquilize a moose when it needs help getting an electric line removed from it ("Fairbanks moose comes to the end of the line," Feb. 10)?

What is the policy in situations like this? You want to kill the bears and wolves off so you can save the moose and turn around and do stupid things like this? Can't state wildlife enforcement officers carry tranquilizer guns and darts as part of their everyday gear?
