Denali Wolf Shootings Add To Population Decline

May 8, 2015

The recent killing of 2 Denali National Park wolves, has increased calls for protection of the animals on state land adjacent to the park, where hunting and trapping are legal. The animals were shot in the Stampede area near Healy, the same region where other park wolves have been trapped and killed.  As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the annual harvest is fairly low, but is garnering concern as the Park wolf population continues to decline.
