An Anchorage volunteer group, the Chugach State Park Citizens Advisory Board, has asked Alaska’s Department of Fish and Game not to go forward with plans to cull wolves from the local state park. Specifically the Ship Creek pack.

The group contacted Fish and Game supervisor, Mark Burch, according to the APRN article.

The advisory board says that the public was provided with little to no notice of the plan to wipe out the local wolves.

The APRN article notes that Burch, after touting the success of the wolf removal program, stated that the control program had been completed. The action was taken in response to reported dog killings and a claim of threats to humans, according to the article.
