    If their decision passes into law, hunters will be allowed to enter dens where bears are hibernating and kill their entire families. They would also be allowed to shoot and kill wolf families, including their pups.

    Slaughtering entire families of hibernating bears is cowardly and inhumane. Bears pose no danger to humans or livestock when they're sleeping through the winter. Culling wolf families is a short-sighted plan that will push their numbers toward extinction again.

    Please provide a link. Without it we can only comment on your hearsay. Reading the bill in its entirety may provide different and relevant insight into this matter.

    It eases obamas regulations and gives control of it back to Alaska. Alaska had laws against it since 94'.

    Wrong party. Democrats and their solar farms are bbq raptors mid air. Then you have the slice and dice deaths of raptors and bats with Obama's green wind farms.

    Heads up. The culling of predators in Alaska is an obligation that the Alaskan government must fulfill by treaty to First Nations.

    That's only part of the story, that just says, in effect, "no."

    Why not read what they are saying, "no" to?
    https://www.fws.gov/policy/library/2016/2016-18117.pdf
    27 pages of arguments and regulations that are the State's business, not the federal government's. Do YOU live in Alaska? Why is this any of my state's business, even if I oppose it, why should I care? It's none of my business. It's like me trying to tell Germany how they should manage their wildlife.
