Alaska officials postpone decision on wolf killings


A N C H O R A G E , A l a s k a — Wildlife managers here have postponed a decision on a controversial proposal to kill wolves in a region south of Anchorage, a state spokesman said.

The Alaska Board of Game postponed its decision on a wolf-control program for the Kenai Peninsula until mid-January, said Scott Crass, a spokesman for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

The proposal would authorize the shooting of wolves from aircraft to thin out packs, with the intention being to boosting the moose population in the Alaskan region.
