State increasing aerial wolf control permits in parts of Alaska

The State wants to increase the wolf take in the eastern interior. The Upper Yukon, Tanana region is the largest of five wolf control zones where permitted pilot/gunner teams can shoot wolves from the air or after landing. Department of Fish and Game spokeswoman Cathie Harms says the agency will issue additional permits for the region, following what was a poor harvest statewide take last winter.
