Alaska Game Board delays action on wolf control program

The Board of Game meeting in Fairbanks has delayed action on its predator control program. The board decided instead to take up the issue at a future special meeting.

The board voted unanimously Wednesday to delay a proposal to permanently authorize an emergency regulation allowing the aerial killing of wolves near McGrath.

Department of Fish and Game spokeswoman Cathie Harms says similar delays for other predator control units probably will be approved.

Harms says more information is needed before the board can permanently authorize the wolf-killing program. She says the agency has the information, but needs additional time to prepare it. She says the staff requested the delay.
