A Buffer Zone Could Go a Long Way for Wolves in Denali

This spring, a female wolf was lured out of Denali National Park with a horse carcass and killed in a snare.  She was the only breeding female in her pack, which left the pack without pups this summer and subsequently caused the 15-member pack to split up and abandon their den.

This senseless and fatal snaring has prompted conservationists to petition the Alaska Board of Game for a hunting and trapping buffer around the park for this hunting season, which is scheduled to begin November 1.
