Predator control

In 2007, Palin supported the Alaska Department of Fish and Game policy allowing Alaska state biologists to hunt wolves from helicopters as part of a predator control program intended to increase moose populations.[30] The program was criticized by Defenders of Wildlife and predator control opponents,[30] and prompted California State Representative George Miller to introduce a federal bill (H.R. 3663) seeking to make the practice illegal.[30] In March 2008, a federal judge in Alaska upheld the practice of hunting wolves from the air, though limited its extent.[31] On August 26, 2008, Alaskans voted against ending the state's predator control program.[32]
