PETA? PETA? Are you home? Is anyone home at PETA? Are you afraid to speak out against a conservative wild animal kill supporter or do you prefer to go after Hormel for killing pigs for meat? Ooops! I just saw your home page and Hormel won the top story! I did see that Caroline Kennedy from Defenders of Wildlife spoke out against what is going on in Alaske. In fact Sarah Palin wanted to PAY hunters $150.00 per wolf shot. You don't have to take my word for it, here is the link to the article from Sept. 02, 2008. I also understand she supports legalizing the hunting of wolves from helicopter which is one of the principal methods of culling wolves that nearly lead to their extinction (and did lead to their extinction in the lower 48 states until the fairly recent Yellowstone wolf reintroduction brought a limited number of wolves back), here is the link to that Sept. 09, 2008 article on another site. We know know that she likes to kill things using modern methods. Too bad some of these wolves destined for the pelt knife couldn't be reintroduced back to areas where they became extinct to revitalize those Ecosystems. Too bad for them I guess! Didn't Congress pass the Federal Airborne Hunting Act of 1972, making it illegal for hunters to shoot animals from a plane or helicopter?
But Alaska uses a loophole covering "predator control," Slate notes. Wolves, foxes and coyotes can be gunned down to protect "land, water, wildlife, livestock, domesticated animals, humans or crops." See? When it comes to killing a "predatory species" she can be a 'good politician'. Hey, wait a minute. Aren't humans a predatory species? Ahhh, blood lust is a beautiful thing....I guess. If we can't eat it, work it or make it a pet.....then KILL IT! You know how understanding and compasionate Pit Bulls are! Maybe it's the lipstick?
