Groups want hunting season suspended for rare Alaska wolves

— Six conservation organizations are asking state and federal authorities to stop hunting and trapping seasons for Alexander Archipelago wolves, a southeast Alaska species that den in the root systems of large trees.

Greenpeace and the Center for Biological Diversity petitioned to list the wolves as endangered in August 2011.

The groups say large-scale logging fragments forests and reduces carrying capacity for Sitka black-tailed deer, the prey of the wolves.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in September agreed to decide by late 2015 whether the wolves warrant endangered species protection.

Rebecca Noblin of the Center for Biological Diversity says without hunting and trapping suspensions, wolves on Prince of Wales Island will be gone before the government can decide whether they need endangered species protection

  1. The strangest and saddest part is that we have no idea why we need to kill things; we just keep doing it because that how we are made, I’m convinced of it. Look at all the wars, the gun violence, the needless killing of animals. We’re monsters. I no longer care what happens to humanity, and I am climate change’s biggest fan. 🙂

  2. This made me smile today – Rick Perry’s response to Donald Trump: “Donald Trump is full of “Trump-isms,” which prove to be nothing but a “toxic mix of demagoguery, mean-spiritedness and nonsense.””

    Isn’t a toxic mix ‘demagoguery, mean-spiritedness nonsense’ just another day at the office in Washington, especially the Conservatives? And don’t forget to include the plain envelope with money in it. The Donald will fit right in.

    If nothing else, he’ll break up that old Republican and Conservative gang of theirs, hopefully.
