The state of Alaska is open to using any measure to kill bears, wolves, and coyotes to reduce the predator population so the moose and caribou populations can increase. Such measures benefit hunters only and destroy the natural balance in the Alaskan wilderness.
The National Park Service, Alaska Region, seeks to prohibit one or more of these hunting measures, which include bear baiting, killing wolves and coyotes with pups, killing bears with cubs, and shooting bears in their dens. These forms of hunting are nothing short of cruel and inhumane and should never be allowed in national preserves.
Contact the National Park Service, Alaska Region, and express your support of the agency’s actions to protect all wildlife in the state.
