I just took action to end the brutal slaughter of Alaska's wolves through aerial gunning at http://www.SaveWolves.org, and I hope you'll join me. They need thousands of names by the end of the day, will you help?

More than 150 wolves have already been shot dead under the state's brutal aerial gunning program so far this year. The Alaska Board of Game allows marksmen to use low-flying airplanes to chase the wolves, run the helpless creatures to exhaustion then gun them down at point-blank range once they're too tired to run any further.

So far, the Bush administration has refused to use its power to stop the slaughter of these innocent animals, including pregnant mothers and young wolf pups.

We must stop the slaughter of Alaska's wolves. Help me protect these magnificent creatures by clicking the link below to send a free message to President Bush and Interior Secretary Kempthorne urging them to enforce the Federal Airborne Hunting Act before it's too late for Alaska's wolves.

Please go to http://www.SaveWolves.org to take action now.

Then forward this message to your friends and family and ask them to join you.

Thanks for helping to protect our precious wolves.
Have you saved a wolf today?

I have loved wolves since I was 12 years old--a long long time ago.
I have, I think, helped some of them over the years.
I am not completely anti-hunting but consider aerial hunting cowardly in the extreme. Picking off animals from the air is "sport hunting"?
Yeah, right.

In NC there is a woman on Black Mountain/Asheville who has over 70 wolf-dogs. They are beautiful animals. So good to hear people trying to help these animals.

hunting, unless for survival, IMO is unwarranted cruelty.
It is a sadistic sport, nothing more.

Ok I believe in wolf hunts but the ariel really goes against what I believe in as this is not hunting in my opinion.

Aerial is not sport hunting. It is controlling the population problem.

Default An Alaskan's View on Wolf Hunting

There are many Alaskans (myself included) who are against the aerial hunt. Actually I don't consider this hunting. I am NOT one for trophy hunters either. What they are saying up here is that the wolves have multiplied greatly and they are killing the caribou and moose in great numbers. Those who live in the bush areas rely on subsistence. Governor Palin up here gave her stamp of approval on this aerial slaughter.

For a while there was a problem outside of Anchorage where wolves were killing pets and following people who had a dog with them. Although I don't like this aerial kill, please keep this in mind: Every year hunters from the lower 48 pay big money for a guide up here when they arrive and go hunting, simply to hang their results on a wall. Alaskans hunt when season opens also, so just please remember the trophy hunters are just as bad.

When Wisconsin establishes a wolf hunting season I will go. My mom had a wolf close to house at 9 am this morning.
