Wolves bring tourists to Alaska

You see in the News that the tourist are not seeing Denali wolves like they used to.

One of the reasons is that the state allows wolves to be hunted/trapped close to the Denali area and of course this brings down the number of wolves there. 

The death of these wolves does not benefit the tourist who want to take photos of these wolves and show the photos to all their friends when they go back home.  Tourist having these photos of these wolves helps make the sale to their friends to come to Alaska on vacation. 

Tourists bring in much more benefits to Alaska economy than dead wolves do.

Someone in the state needs to put on their thinking caps and figure this out.
