State of Alaska to Authorize Extreme Killing Methods on Wolves and Bears

On March 17,2017 I posted an article about the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives voting to overturn a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service rule on forbidding the baiting, trapping and "denning" of bears and wolves.

On March 21,2017 they voted and passed that the state of Alaska to authorize extreme killing methods on public lands. It means that Alaska national wildlife refuges are open for killing wolves and pups during the spring and summer denning season. Hunters will be able to gun down mother bears and their cubs and baiting and snaring bears. And making it even more unfair for the animals, hunters can use airplanes to scout and shoot bears.

I am all about hunting but what they are going to do in Alaska is not hunting. It is not giving the animals a fair shot of getting away. I understand that the population is over populate but there are other ways of hunting for this animals then gunning them down in their homes. I am pretty sure you would get a lot of out of state hunters who would love to come hunt a bear or wolves in Alaska.
