The federal government again is expanding the federal estate by their recent unconstitutional ruling. It’s recent banning of the state’s predator management program will start effectively this September 2016. What does this mean for Alaska? Quite a lot, their community economically relies on abundant big game bringing in sportsmen from around the world, and many of their citizens depend on flourishing big game for their sustenance. The banning of Alaska’s predator management will effect over 73,000,000 acres of prime wildlife country, and will likely decimate Alaska’s Caribou, and Moose herds.
Alaska Rep. Don Young, a Republican, said in a statement Wednesday that he has proposed legislation to overturn the rule banning the state’s predator control program.
“Make no mistake — the size, scope and impact of this rule is enormous,” Young said. “This unilateral power grab fundamentally alters Alaska’s authority to manage wildlife across all areas of our state.”
