Alaska Wolf Slaughter

I have been receiving e-mails about Alaska Wolf Puppies being gunned down deliberately, this is a cruel and barbaric act. This was approved by state officials, they killed 14 puppies and this happened right after they had killed their mother s and fathers ,this was reported by Defenders of Wildlife. Any un-necessary killing of wildlife or any animal angers me to no end as it does every decent citizens of the world.

Alaskan state wildlife personnel illegally chased down a pack of 14 adult wolves by helicopter, shooting them from the air. They say this is to help boost caribou population which is neither sensible nor humane. Later they raided a den of 14 puppies, now orphaned with their mothers and fathers killed just hours before, these puppies were then executed. Alaskans are now moving to end the Board of Game's barbaric aerial hunting of wolves through a ballot measure.

Wealthy interest groups like the Safari Club International are using their powers to defeat this ballot measure. Alaskans for Wildlife, along with Defenders of Wildlife is desperately trying to raise $80,000 in effort to raise public awareness in order to end the hunting of these magnificent wolves.

Anchorage, Alaska residents along the Kuskwim River want State game management to allow them to kill wolf pups in their dens. During her two years as governor Sarah Palin proposed a $150.00 bounty for the severed foreleg of each killed wolf and she introduced legislation to make it easier for hunters to use aircraft to hunt wolves, and just think this woman wants to run for president of our country.

I don't know how all this is going to end, but right now it does not look good for the wolves. I pray that in the great scheme of life it works in favor for the wolves. I think these people that have something to do with the killings of these animals must get a thrill out of doing it. I could not look into the face of any animal and pull the trigger, may God have mercy on them.

This upset me greatly Margaret, I love both wild and domesticated animals and to know they are being killed is as you say barbaric. I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I killed anything.

Take care.

I hope a conclusion can come quickly so the animals can be protected.

Ever since I read Farley Mowat's Never Cry wolf I have been on the side of the wolf. If you ever have a chance, do read this wonderful book. The movie did not do the book justice, I thought.

Dear Margaret ~~How awful that these poor
animals are hunted down and killed so cruelly. I think Sarah Palin likes hunting
so hope she doesn't have the last word on it
Thank you for your kind comments and I am so relieved to feel well again and get on with life. Glad you liked the pics and jokes.
The Cornflake one was funny, and I don't blame the wife for poisoning her hubby. I
hope your weather has warmed up and Spring is there. It's Autumn here but the days have been nice so far. Take care, my friend, Love Merle. Enjoy the rest of the week.

Scary isn't it. As bad as when they were clubbing those baby seals. I don't know how some people can be so mean. Surely there is going to be someone they will have to answer to some day. Sorry I haven't been around for a while, I don't know where the time goes. Right now I have a load of wet clothes that need to be thrown into the dryer and another load that needs washed. And it's 7:30pm all ready. It's been raining here all day. Be so happy to see that sun again. Have a good night and a great week-end, which is just around the corner.

You know the state I live in kills a set amount of mountian lions each year. They are becoming over populated and showing up in peoples yards. The lions have been killing cattle and other animals as well. I wonder if there is more to the story. I hate to see animals die as a fun game but ...
