Our Zoo Can't Obtain Wolves; How Can We Discuss Predator Control?

Letters from the People / Anchorage Daily News / March 29, 2003


I have noticed that the Alaska Zoo has a fine new wolf enclosure but no wolves. Upon inquiring, I was told that the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has known for months about the need to provide wolves for the educational exhibit, but none are available.

How is it that we can discuss predator control by violent methods but cannot provide a pair, or a family, for our enlightenment at the zoo?
