I am a longtime hunter. Like many Alaskans, I was disturbed by the revelation that Department of Fish and Game personnel had killed 14 infant wolves this June on the Alaska Peninsula by shooting each one in the head.
Palin's Wildlife Cartel Represents Circumnavigation of Ethics, Truth
While the whole world is going green, in a desperate attempt to save ourselves from ourselves, Governor Palin has sanctioned the massacre of adult wolves at their den-sites and then permitted the systematic execution of their pups. This action was illegal, and now they are trying to hide the facts.
Palin--in addition to vowing to sue to stop the listing Polar Bears as an endangered species--has put the weight of the state behind defeating a ballot measure that would have limited the aerial shooting of wolves. Nationwide aerial hunting has been banned since 1972's Airborne Hunting Act, but Alaska gets around that by saying the hunters are working for the state to control predators. The idea is to produce more moose and caribou to hunt.

Considering that wildlife is part of nature and humans are killing the planet... I would vote saving the wildlife over saving the humans.

So we're all agreed: Yea with doggies, down with killing wolves and bears from helicopters with semis, trophy hunting, and cruelty to animals and nature in general.
Seems almost reasonable.
