Wolves in Alaska Can Now be Hunted in their Dens

I am just disgusted that it is allowed to kill nursing wolves in their dens with their pups and I just think this needs to stop
Life is full of death
It is the way of life
Predator and prey
I bring life and I take it
That is the way of nature

Unbelievable. Why would they allow that though?

That article was surprisingly a short read; I was expecting something a little more in-depth from NatGeo but I suppose that's expected given that this issue has been covered in the media for quite some time.

I think a lot of people's gut reaction to hunting pups in dens is that it's cruel. I'm not disagreeing, but rather my first thought is, is this an effective form of animal control? There are 11,000 wolves in Alaska (which the article conveniently leaves out and perpetuates the idea that wolves are in constant danger of disappearing, which they are not). I've always been under the impression that wolves can be difficult to trap/hunt/etc. Would targeting a den make it easier? I'm assuming so, since it's a fixed location. I still have yet to read more about this topic so I'm just musing here.
YOU SAY YOU WANT TO GET BETTER AND YOU DON'T KNOW HOW.
