Alaska Bans Stun Gun Use on Wildlife
A few months ago we mentioned that Taser developed a new stun gun to incapacitate wildlife. Apparently Alaska's Department of Fish and Game took notice because they are banning the use of stun guns or Tasers against wildlife. According to Reuters, the DFG is concerned about possible "catch-and-release hunting."
"This was a proactive measure," Larry Lewis, a wildlife manager with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, said on Tuesday. "With new, emerging technology, there's always potential for misuse."
