A pack of wolves killed about a half-dozen sled dogs from three teams in Marshall on Wednesday night before residents of the Yukon River village chased them out of town, according to village officials and Alaska State Troopers. The wolves killed three adult dogs, including a female with pups, several villagers said. About three of the pups were also killed and several other dogs injured.

"They were running through the whole town here," said Dewayne Cooper.


Sorry I was unable to copy this on the day it was posted in the paper, so the rest of the article is not there. But these wolves had came into the village earlier in the day. The kids in the village fired shots to drive the wolves off, but they later returned.

We can thank Friends Of Animals and Defenders Of Wildlife for this. They are the ones that keep getting court injunctions to prevent us from effectively reducing wolf numbers. You don't just walk out into the woods and shoot wolves. They are extremely smart and cunning. The only effective way to kill them is with aircraft. And that can only be done right after a fresh snow, where you can track them and see them against a white background. Just think people in the lower 48, your day is coming. A few more years and they will be coming into your residential communities and killing your dogs and kids, dragging them off and eating them. Before someone says they don't attack people, better really check out your facts, two or three people get attacked every year up here in Alaska. A couple of years ago a man was skiing on the Tanana River. When he did not come home a search was made. All that was found was his skis, a big bloody spot, with little human remains, and lots of wolf tracks.

It is too bad that Californians take the Friends of Animals position up here with regard to the wolves. When the cougar attacks were happening occasionally in California, I don't recall them saying much, if anything. I delight in the comment made by Lee Marvin in the movie Paint Your Wagon; " You don't have to love thy neighbor, you leave the SOB alone." Unfortunately the liberals don't understand the concept.

It's really unfortunate that Alaska falls under a west coast judicial system that does not understand anything about Alaska.

Its funny, in CA there are more mountain lions killed yearly with depredation permits then when we were hunting them.

Before caller ID was so rampant, I used to call the Mountain Lion Foundation about once a year and tell them how I had just killed a lactating female. I would refer to the lions as "vermin". Man they would get upset!! I would just laugh. My friends thought I was a little crazy but they enjoyed the laugh too. I kinda miss that....

I couldn't agree with you more. The Exxon Valdez Oil Spill litigation has been going on now for over 18 years with Exxon losing each time to some major extent. It was the California court that reduced the punitive damage award, which had been reviewed 3 previous times by the federal judge in charge of the case and he was of the opinion that the award was justified in every instance. Today the news related that the US Supreme Court will again hear this case upon the merits of maritime law. Exxon stipulated in the lower court that maritime law would not be used in its defense if the court heard this case under due process law and Constitutional Law. The California appeals court really had no justification to demand the lower court to reduce the punitive damages in the first instance, and none to further reduce the award in the Appeals Court. I wonder how this outcome will be with the High Court not understanding this extremely complicated case. This case is important in the ideology the High Court could or may decide in the Washington, DC right to carry. What compromise or rights of the individual will again be taken away? What happened to the Xth Amendment that the rights of the people not granted to the Constitution or the States are reserved to the people?

Here in Alaska we don't have to follow the three Ss. We have a hunting and a trapping season. With a limit of five for hunting, and no limit for trapping. Plus at from $200.00 to $400.00 per pelt it's worth skinning them.
