Palin Shows No Love for Baby Wolves

On a beautiful Alaskan summer morning in July of this year, a litter of 4-week-old wolf cubs were napping in the safety of their natal den, cuddled together, little bellies full of mother's milk when suddenly they were roughly pulled, half asleep, into

I don't think she would like it if someone pulled her babies from their den and blew their brains out.

Simone, this article says it all. What is most shocking is that M. Scully could write such heart-wrenching thoughtful words about humans hurting animals, and yet turn around and write Palin's speech. Where is the ethics and integrity? So, there is state land and Federal land in Alaska. And the wolves are supposed to know the difference or what it means to their lives and their wolf cubs? Anyone that could shoot helpless pups definitely has no heart or soul. Dark souls.

I could not believe this when I first heard it and I still cannot fathom the cruelty. Words just do not suffice to tell how I feel.

All created things are alive, conscious, and want to communicate. The Creator has endowed all creatures with wisdom and joy, and they are eager to share with us their ways of being in the world. In time we learn to recognize them as our companions.

Went right to the source to ask about Palin and the wolves .... not sure who started the rumour but there was much ado over a lie? misinformation? a smear campaign?

Dear Cam :

Director Larsen asked me to respond to your inquiry on his behalf.

The first of the wolf control programs now under way was approved in the late 1990s under a Democratic governor. No wolves were killed until 2003. We have had two different governors (both Republican) since then. There currently are six control programs in existence.

To clarify one point: helicopters are not, and have not, been used in by private pilots permitted to participate. In only two programs have helicopters been used, and then only by ADF& G employees. In the two programs where helicopters were used, the efforts took place after the most recent electoral cycle. So, if someone in the last election cycle chose to make an issue of using helicopters, it was premature.
