Mother Nature Lends Alaskan Wolves a Helping Hand
The aerial predator control program in Alaska is facing some challenges. The loud opposition to the program isn’t slowing down the hunt but rather an intervention by Mother Nature herself! Snowfall has been less than normal in parts of the state, limiting the success of the controversial program. This isn’t the first time that Mother Nature has created challenges for the hunt, a record low number of wolves were killed last winter due to a lack of sufficient snow as well. Perhaps the state should worry less about the wolf population and more about why it isn’t snowing in Alaska!
