Slaughtering Wolves, Baiting Bears, Killing
Moose Calves Defies Logic
Letters to the Editor / Anchorage Daily News /March 28, 2004
am appalled that the state is slaughtering wolves as well
as permitting bear baiting. I cannot understand the supposed
logic of destroying wolves and bears in order to have more
moose (that is the story told to the citizens; of course,
few people believed them). Supposedly, the people in McGrath
didn't have enough meat to eat, hence the slaughtering
began. Now Fish and Game will be killing moose calves because
there is an "overabundance" of moose!
In the short time he has been governor, Frank Murkowski has caused great hardship
to the ecosystem by promoting the killing wolves and bears, and now the slaughtering
of baby moose. What kind of management would you call this? It is ruining the
state and its ecosystem. It seems he thinks nothing of the future environment.
Think what havoc he will wreak before we have the chance to vote in a new governor.
