FAIRBANKS, Alaska -- A helicopter will be used to hunt wolves for the second year in a row in the Fortymile region near Tok as part of a state predator control program.
In a report to the Alaska Board of Game in Fairbanks on Thursday, biologist Jeff Gross said the Alaska Department of Fish and Game will take to the air as soon as there is fresh snow to help track and find wolves.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported the state shot and killed 84 wolves during six days last March using fixed-wing aircraft to find the wolves and a helicopter to shoot them.
