ANCHORAGE - Gov. Sean Parnell has sent a letter to Congress expressing his strong opposition to federal legislation he says would eliminate predator control.
In his letter, Parnell urges members of Congress to oppose the legislation.
Parnell says predator control in Alaska is about feeding people. And he says the federal legislation known as the PAW Act infringes on states' rights to manage their own wildlife.
California Rep. George Miller recently introduced the legislation. It would ban airborne predator control unless a biological emergency is imminent, and all hunting and harvest has been eliminated.
