Wolf cull in the Cariboo

Download Flash Player to view this content.

The provincial government is calling it open season on wolves that trespass ranches in the Chilcotin-Cariboo region. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations says the wolf population is ballooning in the Central Interior. And that the four-legged predators are eating too much livestock. New rules say there is no closed season and no bag limit on hunting wolves in 10 management units in the Cariboo region. The area ranges from 100 Mile House to Quesnel and stretches alongside the Great Bear Rainforest. In this clip Daybreak North speaks to rancher Heidi Redl and wildlife photographer/conservationist Ian McAllister.
