Congressman lashes out at members urging wolf protections

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -- U.S. Rep. Don Young lashed out at congressional members who urged continued protections for the gray wolf in parts of the Lower 48, saying none is from a district affected by wolves.

He said during a hearing in Washington, D.C., that he would like to introduce wolves in their districts: "I'd introduce `em in your district, you wouldn't have a homeless problem anymore."

Spokesman Matt Shuckerow said Young's comments weren't related to addressing homeless populations. He said they were hyperbolic and meant to show wolves pose a threat to wildlife management and have damaging effects on communities.

Young earlier voiced frustration with a lack of consultation with the state and Native groups on issues.
