    Arrow Ak Hunting News: Judge Stops State Wolf Incentive Program

    This news clip is from Alaska Hunting News. Discussion is welcome. This news feed is robot generated.

    An Alaska Superior Court judge has ordered the state of Alaska to halt its new program of paying gunners $150 for wolves taken, the Anchorage Daily News has reported.

    The financial incentive was designed to increase the take of wolves in areas where wolf predation control efforts are underway. Preservation groups maintained that the incentives constituted a "bounty," and the judge agreed.

    The state is now considering other options, including the use of state personnel shooting wolves from helicopters.

    How many times do we have to endure this cycle?

    Why doesn't somebody get the friggen clue?

    There are so many industries/groups/etc that get "subsidies" that it's beyond reform. I tried to learn the amount of money Planned Parenthood was subsidized (which should be public information) and never got it. I was told it was "buried in block grants".

    Bullspit.

    So how about if the state just flooded trappers with "subsidies"? "Block grants"? There's no doubt that they need it.

    If the judge ruled that it was a "bounty", his ruling could be reversed right back on Planned Parenthood, in that they're offering "bounties" on human fetuses................
