Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Tues., April 20, 1976 Alaskan Officials Offer Wolves For Export JUNEAU. Alaska (AP) --' For the past year, Ihe State of Alaska has had a standing of* fer: take a \volt off our. bauds. No takers, : So in a move that has outraged people Hying in states where the \volt is virtually extinct, government biologists are shooting the, animals from air planes and helicopters The wolf body count since mid-February: about 85.' Each one has cost about Sl.QOD to track down and kill.;The stale hopes to kill 200 or about * per cent of the state's wolf' popn lation. ,L : "This offer'still stands." says Guy. Jay Hammond, himself _ retired wolf hunter: "We would rather export wolves than kill them, ·'However, this takes money and willing recipients. Both, _to date, have' been in short sitp ply." Hammond says thp woll packs must be thinned. Biologists say the. animals arc gobbling up too many moose and caribou and have developed a taste for pet dogs. Environmentalists who triec to slop tbe killing' say wolves are getting'a bum rap" Alaskan officials were .various when (hey asked if other people would like to have a wolf. ' The University of Nevada a Las Vegas --.-. whose sports .teams are "The Wolfpack" -'asked for oiw as a mascot They were- lurnbd down be cause the animals THUS!
