Here's a recent article from Washington State with a lot of the same issues as in the other Bad Press thread. Besides the fact that the tribal police may have acted illegally, this story has many of the same issues as the other thread and makes some points that in a State the size of Alaska, aren't really thought about.
One thought I had.... States like Washington and other lower 48 states are crowded, and sometimes finding a remote hunting area is harder. And then there's the fact that this was a legal hunt that the state sanctioned. I'm guessing it was a damage control hunt. They usually limit hunts in areas with homes and businesses to muzzle loaders, shotguns and archery. You might think, well why have a hunt in an area like that, but sometimes the animals outstrip their environment and the biologists want to keep them in check. There are safety factors they may be trying to control also such as animals on roadways. Hitting a moose is bad, but what about rounding a corner and crashing into a herd of elk? It does happen. Elk can also do a lot of property damage in a hurry being herd animals.
