Game board ignored public, science

The Alaska Board of Game just declared war on the Kenai Peninsula wolves by voting unanimously in favor of aerial wolf killing in Unit 15A and Unit 15C. This was done in the face of a large outcry against it and not being supported by scientific data. We can applaud our local advisory Fish and Game board for voting the proposal down with good reasons that the Board of Game chose to ignore.

The proposed budget for this killing spree is upward of $1 million; this in a time when fish and game budgets are being slashed. Not only do we have an unbalanced Board of Game, but the Parnell administration also has given gag orders to state biologists.

This political game is out of control and it is up to we the citizens to demand change. Contact Gov. Sean Parnell, Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and your legislators and let them know we are not going to take this anymore.
