Palin Administration Calls in the Helicopters for Sweeping Wolf Massacre
The Palin administration considerably escalated its aerial wolf killing spree this past weekend, with full details only becoming clear in the hours after the killing initiated. At least 58 wolves have been killed in the Upper Yukon/Tanana area of Alaska over the past 4 days by Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) staff, which indicates that their target of approximately 250 wolves will be easily met. The key ingredient is the decision by the governor and her appointed Alaska Board of Game to use helicopters as part of the state's wolf killing program in this region. The Board of Game approved the use of agency helicopters and personnel at its most recent meeting, which ended March 9, 2009, but those new regulations are not yet in effect, making the current helicopter wolf killing program in the Upper Yukon/Tanana region illegal. It is on these grounds that the board now faces a law suit, filed today by Defenders of Wildlife calling for an immediate injunction on the aerial wolf killing occurring in this area
Maybe we should put up higher fences and dig a moat and put alligators in it to stop them from crossing the boarder
the Mexican gray wolf is one of the rarest mammals in the world. It is estimated that at least 4,000 of these wolves once roamed across Texas, New Mexico and Arizona and were equally as abundant in Mexico. Like the other gray wolves in the United States, Mexican gray wolves were exterminated by government programs and private individuals to the point of near extinction.
