Stop Aerial Hunting of Alaska’s Wolves

As we sit helplessly through the senseless hunt of wolves here in the Northern Rockies, I want to turn my attention for a moment to gray wolves further north, in Alaska.  They are being brutally killed by aerial hunting, a barbaric practice that does not belong in modern society.

Sarah Palin is gone but her policies still remain. Aerial hunting of wolves and bears is WRONG!!  Congress passed legislation banning hunting with airplanes but Alaska found a loophole in the law.  The majority of Alaskans are against aerial hunting.  It’s cruel and unnecessary.  Help the wolves by asking Congress to pass the PAWS act (“Protect America’s Wildlife Act (S. 1535 and H.R. 3381), federal legislation to end the controversial practice of using aircraft to chase and kill wolves in Alaska and the Northern Rockies”)

Please sign the petition to stop this senseless slaughter.

This is what aerial wolf hunting looks like. From Defenders of Wildlife:

“WARNING: These GRAPHIC PHOTOS show dead wolves — the raw, horrible aftermath of Alaska’s out-of-control aerial wolf-killing program.

On March 14, 2009 Alaska wildlife officials used helicopters and spotter planes to carry out Governor Sarah Palin’s escalating wolf-killing program. The operation claimed the lives of 84 wolves — and the killing only stopped when officials couldn’t find any more wolves in the area.

Although Alaska officials have claimed copyright to these photos, they were obtained through a public records request. Defenders of Wildlife believes the public has a right to know the truth about Alaska’s brutal aerial wolf-killing program”….Defenders of Wildlife

“The wolf is neither man’s competitor nor his enemy. He is a fellow creature with whom the earth must be shared.” -L. David Mech

  1. Hi,

    sorry that this might come out at a random time. We have just started a new website, to try and prevent aerial hunting in Alaska. We were wondering if you could become a partner site with us?

  2. Well, I started the website as I am a roleplayer amongst others, and I saw the terrible conditions that they could be in while going through pictures s we decided to help out by making a website.
    There are already many of us, and still to come to the website.
    The site is still quite new, and we might have our mistakes and all, but I think we will still improve from here, as we really want to reach our goal.

    • Escutcheon….
      Go to cnet.com, they have free malware removal programs. Then it will scan your computer and get rid of it.

      Don’t let that stop you though. Alaska’s wolves need people like you that care. Keep up the good work!!
