As wolf hunt near Denali looms, state rejects calls for another emergency ban

Wasilla – with a disputed wolf hunt on state lands outside Denali National Park set to resume next month, wildlife groups are ramping up calls for state officials to again make use of an emergency ban to block the hunt as they did earlier this year….in mid-May closed the Denali corridor wolf hunt northeast of the park two weeks early after a hunter legally killed two wolves.  But the ban expired with the regulatory year June 30; it’s again legal to take wolves starting Aug. 10.
