From Defenders of Wildlife:
When you promote a grotesque program like Gov. Sarah Palin’s Alaska wolf slaughter, expect gruesome results.
A startling example: In June, after gunning down 14 adult wolves from a helicopter, officials from Gov. Palin’s Department of Fish and Game rounded up 14 orphaned wolf pups and methodically shot each one in the head in clear violation of a state law.
State law prohibits the targeting of pups — a practice known as denning. Maybe that’s why Palin’s officials tried to cover it up, making no mention of the brutal pup executions in the state’s June 30 press release on the killings. To date, none of the officials involved in the incident has been held accountable.
This story needs to be told before the Nov. 4 election. Please watch our new video on Palin’s wolf-killing record and share it with every animal lover you know.
Gov. Palin could be just a heartbeat from the presidency. Do we want a vice-president who violates the law and champions savagery toward animals?
