Appalling news from Alaska.

Soon after Alaska's Board of Game approved the killing of all wolves in an area near Cold Bay, state officials illegally killed 14 wolf pups after gunning down their mothers -- yet another grisly chapter in the Alaska’s out-of-control wolf slaughter.

Here’s what happened: State wildlife agency personnel staked out a known wolf denning site -- a practice that is illegal under Alaska law -- and, using helicopters, they gunned down 14 adult wolves from the air, part of an effort to boost caribou populations in Southwest Alaska.

When they landed, they found the 14 helpless pups in the nearby dens -- just weeks old -- and methodically shot each one in the head. 28 wolves gunned down in all. 

Please donate now to help save Alaskan wolves from Alaska’s out-of-control Board of Game.

Alaskans are now moving to end the Board of Game’s barbaric aerial hunting of wolves through a ballot measure.

On August 26th voters can pass this ballot measure and ban this awful practice before another deadly season begins.

We are helping Alaskans for Wildlife, a coalition of local grassroots activists, hunters and citizens who secured the 55,000 signatures to put this measure on the ballot. Already, they have reached thousands of voters across the state with their hard-hitting mailings.

Please help us raise $80,000 by August 7th so that we can help Alaskans for Wildlife reach 125,000 voters with mailers like the one on the right -- and end barbaric aerial hunting.

We’re up against wealthy groups like Safari Club International who are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to defeat the ballot measure.

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has even signed off on a $400,000 state-funded propaganda campaign to justify the state’s barbaric wolf slaughter from the skies.

Your support is crucial to combat this million dollar campaign.

On August 26th, Alaskans can end the wolf slaughter from the skies. With your help, we can win for the wolves.

Man Who Beheaded Cat May Escape Punishment Because He "Wants a Clean Record to Become a Prison Guard"?


Politically-Motivated Probation Report Paints Rosy Portrait of Killer
In January, Robert See of Dutchess County in upstate New York shot his cat with a high-powered rifle after the animal urinated on his carpet. See then cut the cat's head off with an axe and put it in a bag which he hung on a neighbor's property. While he was arrested and charged with animal cruelty after the cat's decapitated head was discovered, it seems now that this cat killer may not have to pay for his murderous crime.

The District Attorney's office had originally planned to charge See with only a misdemeanor, but now they are leaning towards not prosecuting him at all. The reason is that See wants to be a prison guard, and having any criminal record at all would legally prevent him from being hired for the job. The Dutchess County Department of Probation seems more than happy to help him out by issuing a report characterizing See as "well-grounded and responsible" and his actions as "a reflection of the values in a rural area."

Such a statement by an official agency is an offense to the majority of people in rural areas who care about animals and would be horrified by the thought of someone killing and beheading their cat for urinating on a rug. Such a violent act against an innocent animal is completely inappropriate for anyone, and should certainly not be tolerated in someone whose ambition is to guard prisoners. Considering what See did to his defenseless cat, it is frightening to think of how he would treat incarcerated human beings.

*** WHAT ELSE YOU CAN DO ***




Contact Dutchess County District Attorney William V. Grady and politely urge him to prosecute Robert See to the fullest extent of the law. Remind him that studies by the F.B.I. and U.S. Department of Justice have proven the connection between animal abuse and violence against humans, and that See's act of animal cruelty should automatically disqualify him from serving as a prison guard

If you can not read this message for any reason, you can view it online now... Speak Up for Jaguars and Other Border Wildlife This week, the Senate is considering immigration legislation that could profoundly affect our jaguars and other border wildlife. Please call your Senators now and let them know that border security need not hurt our precious critters. >> Forward this message Dear Cristina, Illegal immigration -- and America’s efforts to control it -- has taken a heavy toll on America’s border wildlife. But this week we have a chance to do something to protect the jaguars, wolves and other wildlife along our borders. The Senate is now considering its immigration bill, and you can help ensure that wildlife is protected. Please call your Senators and urge them to support wildlife-sensitive border security. About half of the land along the Mexican border and a quarter of the land along the Canadian border are federal and tribal lands. These areas include national parks, monuments, wildlife refuges, forests and wilderness. Jaguars, the highly endangered Sonoran pronghorn, desert tortoises and other imperiled wildlife all make their home in these beautiful and often remote places. Unfortunately, Border Patrol activities and illegal crossings have severely damaged these sensitive areas in ways that could take decades to repair. A decade ago, the Border Patrol increased enforcement efforts in urban areas, shifting undocumented border crossings into more remote areas. These crossings and efforts to stop them -- have serious impacts for sensitive desert habitat and the wildlife that needs it to survive. Trails and roads carved by illegal immigrants can destroy sensitive vegetation and wildlife habitat. The fragile desert soils and plants could take over a century to recover. Trash and human waste left behind during illegal border crossings affect soil and water quality. Abandoned vehicles are expensive to remove and towing them causes additional damage. Similarly, low-level helicopter flights by the Border Patrol disturb wildlife and habitat. Off-road vehicle patrols also damage sensitive regions vital to local wildlife. And U.S. road-, light-, and fence-building projects disturb wildlife, destroy habitat and shift animal migratory patterns. Senators Craig Thomas (R-WY), John Kyl (R-AZ), Ken Salazar (D-CO) and Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) have offered an amendment to the immigration bill that would address many of these issues, and Defenders is urging wildlife supporters like you to support it. Help support responsible border control efforts. The Senate could vote on the immigration bill any minute, so please call your Senators now (if they don’t answer, please leave a message). Thanks for standing up for sensible border security and responsible management of our country’s borderlands and the precious wildlife that lives there.

URGENT! Save Avenal Prison Cats!

Take Action On This Issue
Help save the cats – send a letter to the California Department of Corrections and the Avenal Prison Warden!

Feeding stations built by the inmates have been destroyed and the warden has mandated that no one is to leave food or water for the cats. With this cruel, inhumane policy in place, cats are now being trapped and removed by the prison. Cats are often left in traps on the prison grounds for two days or more with no food or water. They are exposed to the elements and other animals that may harm them!

The picture above shows a cat in a trap on the prison grounds, which has hurt itself after being left in trap for several days.

Since Fall 2001, Avenal State Prison in Kings County, California, has had an effective, well-managed Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program. Volunteers, prison workers, and inmates, with help from Alley Cat Allies and other animal welfare groups, implemented the TNR program in response to a feeding ban that was issued in fall 2000.

Acting Warden Joseph Huskey supported the TNR program for five years, but there has now been a change of leadership and the new warden, Kathy Mendoza-Powers, is seeking to remove and ultimately kill all the cats on the prison grounds.

Please write or e-mail the Secretary of the California Department of Corrections and Warden Mendoza-Powers now! Demand an immediate moratorium on removing the cats and a reinstatement of their feeding and TNR, the only humane, effective management program for feral cats.

Stand Up for Our Endangered Wildlife

For more than 30 years, the Endangered Species Act (ESA) has protected magnificent creatures such as the bald eagle, Florida panther, sea otter, and American alligator from extinction.

The House of Representatives has passed Congressman Richard Pombo's (R-CA) "Wildlife Extinction" bill, which would gut the ESA. The fate of the Endangered Species Act will ultimately be decided in the Senate.

Help us ensure that the Pombo “Wildlife Extinction” bill does NOT become law. Send a message to your Senators now!


Help us reach our goal!
