Fish and Game Should Enforce Rules in Wolf Shooting Incident
Letters to the Editor / Anchorage Daily News / April 11,
Eagle River and Hillside residents are lectured and threatened
with fines for leaving trash cans and bird feeders out
in the summer, why is it OK for someone in Chuathbaluk
to leave fish to thaw outside their house and then shoot
the wolf that it attracts ("Wolf creeps onto couple's porch for midnight snack," March
31)? State regulations read, "A person may not intentionally feed a moose, bear,
wolf, coyote, fox or wolverine, or negligently leave human food, pet food or
garbage in a manner that attracts these animals."
While the Daily News treated the whole episode as if it were just "life in Alaska" and
perfectly acceptable, I hope Fish and Game will enforce its own regulations by
insisting that all Alaskans learn to be more responsible in the way they interact
