Rep. George Miller (CA) has introduced the Protect America's Wildlife (PAW) Act, legislation to close a federal loophole and curb Alaska's brutal aerial hunting program -- and prevent programs like it from spreading to places like the Greater Yellowstone region. But he needs your support to win passage of this wolf-saving measure.
My name is Cindy Hoffman, and I head up Defenders of Wildlife’s communications team. Some of the toughest, most important decisions that my team makes are about the advertisements we run to help convince our leaders to stand up for wildlife.
Today, I need your help to make one of these decisions.
For the last several months, Defenders has been running an all-out campaign to pass the Protect America’s Wildlife (PAW) Act and stop unethical trophy hunters from using aircraft to chase down and kill wolves in Alaska.
Thanks to our Campaign to Save America’s Wolves and the efforts of dedicated wildlife supporters in Alaska and across the country, more than 100 Representatives have already signed on to co-sponsor the PAW Act.
Here’s the next step: When Congress returns to work later this month, we’re going to run an ad in The Express and make sure that Members of Congress, Congressional staffers and hundreds of thousands of other Washingtonians know the awful truth aerial hunting of wolves.
And because you’re so important to the ultimate success of this campaign, I want you to help us select our message.
We only have a short time to decide on the messaging we’ll use in this ad, so please cast your vote today.
Vice President, Communications
Defenders of Wildlife
P.S. We’ll announce the winning ad on Friday, so stay tuned to see whether your selection was chosen!
I voted but it broke my heart to see the poor dead wolf hanging from the plane. Maybe that is what it will take to wake people up to this atrocity! Animals were here long before humans yet they are treated as interlopers and pests! They are very instrumental in the ecosystem and the sooner those idiots who want to kill everything realize it the better. Hopefully it won't be too late!
Let's pray that that poor wolf's lifeless body will change the way the 'killers' view wolves and their lives. The picture is very, very powerful indeed. Thank you for posting the winning ad.

Stop Alaska's Aerial Hunting Program - From Spreading To Yellowstone!
Email a letter to John McCain and upload a photo too! Tell him what you think about the huntress, Sarah Palin who wears FUR! Her nickname is 'killa from Wasilla' cause she is from that city.
Susan, I added that link because Sarah Palin is the Governor of Alaska who is an advocate of aerial shooting of wolves in Alaska and I pray no one votes for McCain because it will make her our V.P. and the aerial shooting could definitely spread to Yellowstone if it hasn't already.
Vicki my friend. We can't email McCain and let him know about OUR wolves or OUR buffalo. Palin might be ready to relax and decide this would be great fun to hunt a new area for wolves. Since there are no buffalo in Alaska, they might really peak her interest since she has never killed one of these magnificent animals. We need to hide them from her or she might just go to Yellowstone for the slaughter (or she would call it a "hunt"). In fact, we should hide all our wild animals from this evil bitch as she seems to get great pleasure in advertizing how many and kinds of animals she can kill, stuff, or wear.
