Gov. Sarah Palin's Assault on Unprotected Wolves Has Escalated

Now, if you can actually believe it, they are tossing poisioned gas into wolf dens containing pregnant mothers and pups. They are still chasing down, exhausting, and shooting wolves from the air and ground. Again, you could spend an entire lifetime in Alaska and never even lay eyes on a gray wolf. Never. How is this considered to be hunting, a normally traditional and honorable practice? I am utterly appalled by this, and by Gov. Palin. I just can't wrap my mind around the reasoning behind this, and I've certainly done my research. I honestly didn't think it could get any worse, but I was wrong.

Please, take the time to view the video below. If you can, donate. I have given, at different times, even as little as $5 to $10. I hope it helps. This is an issue close to my heart, but I truly believe it goes to the heart of morality, to what we teach our children, and to how we treat other living things. I can't imagine the hunters I grew up with--men who were taught by their fathers and grandfathers--ever participating in such a dishonorable and despicable aspect of their sport.
