on Wednesday, the refuge announced the hunt would be postponed and there was an outside chance it could be called off entirely. A controversial alligator hunt planned for a federal wildlife refuge in western Palm Beach County will be postponed until at least 2014, while the federal government formally reviews the environmental impact of expanding hunting at about two dozen refuges.

What part of the word Sanctuary do they not understand. Hunting and sanctuary, much like hunting and refuge or hunting and park...are diametrically opposed.
