Well, here we go again, I guess.
I wonít comment on the looming fun and games you and our beloved Don Young are about to engage in regarding your proposal to put an end to aerial wolf ďhuntingĒ over Alaskan federal lands, but I do have a suggestion for you:
Perhaps you can simply accept all the live wolves and brown bears the Alaska Dept. of Fish and Game can send you fine folks in California? Just think of the Godlike status you would elevate yourself to in the eyes of the animal kooks who support you if you reintroduced brown bears to the Golden State! Why, it would even bring new life to your state flag!
How can you refuse? Itís win/win/win, isnít it? Alaskans win, the bears/wolves win, and yaíll win, right?
And finally you wonderfully intelligent folks there in California can show us dumb Alaskans (as well as the rest of the world) how to manage brown bears and wolves. (Sorta like how you manage lions.......feeding them so well with disarmed women and children........Funny, there were no lion attacks reported in your fine state for 77 years, between 1909 and 1986. Ya'll banned lion hunting in 1972, then made it "permanent" in 1992........And, imagine this, there have been 9 attacks since 1992.......Yeah, ya'll sure are smart.....)
Iím going to suggest this proposal to your old friend Don. Perhaps he can bring it up to all your esteemed colleagues in the House.
A Happy Former Californian, and Alaskan of 33 years
