Mystified by ADF&G's choice of spokesman

Posted: Thursday, June 19, 2008

Here is a mystery.

The Department of Fish and Game has been prominently promoting an information session where people can get the "facts" about predator control.

Why would ADF&G use and advertise as the spokesman at that event a very controversial man with a very high profile as a perceived major predator control advocate, with the additional complication of being perceived as strongly anti-Native and anti-subsistence?

The result is that any material presented at this ADF&G-sponsored event will necessarily be suspect in the eyes of many.

It seems an odd and counterproductive way for ADF&G to proceed.
