As Alaskans, we love our wildlife and wild places. But being a bear, wolf or other predator in our state can be tough. For the past 15 years, the Alaska Board of Game has increasingly targeted these native carnivores by authorizing a range of outrageous tactics, including aerial gunning, killing mother wolves and their young in their dens, using bait to attract bears and using traps and snares.
This summer, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) finalized a regulation to prohibit these extreme methods on national wildlife refuges in Alaska. It was a fantastic step in the right direction, but now Governor Bill Walker is considering filing a lawsuit to challenge it.
Tell the governor to support the FWS rule.
