Feds lift wolf-hunting ban as hunters seek teacher's killers

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Friday gave Alaska hunters a 10-day permit to pursue wolves across the boundaries of a national wildlife refuge as state authorities dispatched a helicopter to help hunt down wolves that stalked and killed a special education teacher on Monday. An autopsy Thursday confirmed that Candice Berner had been killed and partially eaten by as many as three wolves in the first fatal wolf attack in North America in five years.
