Killing Wolves and Grizzlies in Alaska

Alaska is allowing hunters to kill grizzly bears so said hunters will have more moose to kill.

That about sums up the reasoning behind the state’s “predator control” program. The linked Seattle Times article states that 250 wolves have already been done in. I guess it was time to move on to bears.

What do you want to bet that next year it will be cougars?

Meanwhile, Canadian and US authorities seem to be closing in on a ring of bald eagle poachers and eagle parts traffickers.
