Wolves from Denali’s Grant Creek Pack trapped in Stampede townships

What we most suspected would happen has indeed happened. Two wolves, one a female of breeding age, were recently snared on a dead horse within a half mile of a cabin and a mile of the park boundary. The kills were within an area formerly established by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game as a no-wolf-killing zone, in deference to the surrounding national park lands. This area was lost when the Board of Game declined to retain it when it sunsetted in 2010.  The vote was close, however, and there is every reason to believe that some folks at the state level would consider bringing it back. We look forward to continuing a productive and collaborative discussion to correct problems associated with loss of this controlled use area.
