Sarah Palin’s Alaska, Not Welcoming For Wildlife (VIDEO)

Sarah Palin’s Alaska is a new reality tv show in which the state’s former governor is billed to “bring the wonder and majesty of Alaska to all Americans.” In the 8-episode travelogue Palin is seen adventuring the wilderness of the state with various family members and enjoying the beauty that surrounds her.

However, Alaska is anything but a tranquil place for Alaska’s wildlife because of Palin.

During her 2008 bid for Vice President, Palin was under constant fire from animal advocates, most notably The Humane Society of the United States. Not only an enthusiastic hunter, she also supported the aerial hunting of wolves and attempted to have polar bears and beluga whales taken off the endangered species list to serve the interests of Alaska, including off-shore drilling.

To push aerial hunting, Palin offered a bounty of $150 for every severed forelimb of a wolf. Why? Wolves are natural predators of moose and caribou, the big hunting game in Alaska. Palin wanted to kill the wolves so there would be more of these animals for hunters like herself to shoot and kill themselves.

The program even shows Palin hunting and fishing the state’s majestic animals. “Palin acts like she has never met an animal she didn’t want shot,” Priscilla Feral of Friends of Animals said in 2008.

Is this the kind of person we want representing Alaska’s beautiful wildlife?

This is a very sad story. An other animal has to go only because "we" humans do not want to share the world with other life forms, these life forms "we" would not eat (vegetarian food is not a bad idea, or eating with conscience as the so called primitive cultures did and still do, if they still exist. No meat/fish every day).

As little child i thought that rain is when God and the angels cry - because "we" humans have forgotten that we need this "intelligence", someone who could help... if "we" hadn't turned away for many centuries ago...

"Only when the last tree has been cut down; Only when the last river has been poisoned; Only when the last fish has been caught; Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten."
(Native American proverb)

"We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not yet learned the simple art of living together as brothers." (Martin Luther King)

Sarah Palin needs to go hunting with Dick Cheney. Maybe she could be his next hunting "accident." The world would be better off without out her.
