Wolf policy is unfair and inhumane

Letter to the editor

Posted: Sunday, January 25, 2004

I disagree with Gov. Frank Murkowski's decision to allow shooting of wolves from the air. Shooting from the air is unfair and inhumane. Plus a law was already passed making this illegal. Wolves are a natural part of the environment. When you disturb the natural balance this creates more problems. When Yellowstone ran out of wolves they had to get more wolves from Alaska. If the governor is worried about the moose population, then limit the amount of hunting. What will be next - the bears or orca whales?
