Counting Caribou: Native hunters want wolf hunt to restore dwindling herds

With barren-land caribou numbers down in the Northwest Territories, government officials announced Monday that the bag limit for non-native hunters would be reduced from 5 caribou to 2 bulls. Aboriginal leaders argue that the problem isn’t non-native hunters but wolves and grizzly bears. They want the opportunity to control wolf populations in particular, despite the protests of animal-rights advocates. "These are the guys that are tying themselves to trees with a chain,” says Behchoko Chief Leon Lafferty, “I'd like to see themselves tie themselves to a wolf with a chain."
