State is entity not following the law

To answer Mrs. Spraker (Clarion, Jan. 11), the answer is no, the USF&W is following its own law. Had spraker quoted the USF&W letter, she would know it is not federal policy to engage in predator control. Of more importance is the fact the State of Alaska is breaking state law. Article eight, section four of the Alaska Constitution requires the state to manage fish and wildlife for sustained use, a scientific term of precise meaning. Predators are included in the term wildlife and the court has found constitutional delegates intended to include predators. Regardless, the state has ignored this principle of science for 50 years. Judge Morse said predators were included in the term wildlife. In effect, predators have a constitutional right to exist and to be managed for sustained yield, regardless of urban hunter demand for success (see West v. Board of Game 248 p.3d 689; AK 2010).
