Re: "Feral says fights will be fierce" (April
4): I am not a conservationist, naturalist or biologist. I
am a retired registered hunting guide with 25 years of hunting
experience and several thousand hours of flying experience
near McGrath. Whatever the moral judgment on my hunting activities,
there is no question that I could not have learned more about
the interaction of Alaska's predators and prey. In the Bush,
people do not care if wolves lay hard boiled eggs or sleep
with their toes curled up. For them, there is nothing romantic
about wolves, nothing cuddly. To them, wolves are not evil
but simply a competitor for their food supply.
take your time and read "How We Can Help End Childhood
Hunger" in the April 4 issue of Parade magazine. Millions
are starving. Do we need more? Thank you, Ms. Feral, for visiting
Alaska; but it's our state, our wolves, our decisions.
