In just one two-month trapping season, hunters and trappers killed 165 wolves – 97% of the most recent population estimate – on Alaska’s Prince of Wales Island.
This record-high killing follows a reckless decision by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to eliminate wolf quotas for hunters and trappers in the region and to stop in-season monitoring of mortality.
This catastrophe could spell disaster for this small population. We need decisive action to keep these wolves from disappearing altogether!
