Alaska wolf killings upset National Park Service

Alaska Fish and Game officials killed an Eastern Interior wolf pack last week, and the National Park Service – which had been studying the animals – is none too pleased.  All 11 wolves in the Lost Creek pack near Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve were shot, as were four wolves from another unnamed pack…That included the Lost Creek pack’s alpha pair, which had been fitted with tracking collars as part of an ongoing research project…the wolves were in an area adjacent to the preserve that has been targeted for aerial predator control to boost moose and caribou numbers.
