Final Wolf Kill In Eastern Interior

The state is preparing for the final season of its largest and longest running predator control program. The Upper Yukon Tanana aerial wolf kill has harvested about a thousand wolves from the calving grounds of Forty Mile caribou herd since 2004. As KUAC’’s Dan Bross reports, the controversial aerial shooting program is scheduled to sunset this spring so biologists can evaluate its effectiveness.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
