Proposals to reinstate a no wolf kill area on state land along Denali National Park’s northeast edge, will be considered by the Alaska Board of Game. The board imposed a moratorium on the controversial buffer zone proposals when it eliminated a previous one in 2010, but as KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the issue returns to the board agenda during a week long meeting in Fairbanks that began today (Fri).
