Some Good News for Some Wolves In Alaska!

Last week in Homer, Alaska the Homer Fish and Game Advisory Committee recommended that the Board of Game NOT approve two intensive management proposals that include aerial wolf control. Vice Chair Tom Young said he voted against the wolf control proposals because the limiting factor on the moose population is not predation by wolves, but rather the "stressed" habitat they share. HomerNews.com reports that most of the members in attendance at last weeks meeting spoke against the wolf control proposals stating that there is a lack of evidence reflecting that wolves are the problem. This is some promising news for one small portion of Alaska's wolf population and we'll take it! To read more about the meeting in HomerNews.com, please click here.
