Alaska Board of Game Takes Aim At Kenai Wolves (Again)
The Alaska Board of Game proposes to allow the killing of all the wolves in Unit 15C (on the Kenai Peninsula) to artificially boost moose populations for hunters.

The Alaska Board of Game has repeatedly opted for lethal predator control as their management tool of choice despite opposition from the scientific community and public outcry. It’s time that science, not special interest groups, guide responsible wildlife management policy, especially with so much at stake in one of Alaska’s most iconic wild places.
