Kivalliq elder calls for cull of wolves, bears, wolverines to protect caribou

As you may know, those of you who are 60 to 70 years old remember that the last time the governments had programs to cull wolves was way back in the 1950s, and it didn’t last very long either. Wolves and other meat eaters were poisoned over one winter or so.

As you may know, or not heard of, wolf populations grow fast and some litters are maybe up to eight to 10 pups per female. That is a lot.

If you let the wolf population grow that long, increasing in numbers over the past 60 years, they have no doubt been eating a whole lot of tuktuit.

So how come and why is it that us natives are always the first ones to be blamed?
