Join Ashley Judd and Defenders of Wildlife to Stop the Aerial Killing of Wolves

As a long-time conservationist and animal rights activist, I am personally outraged by Sarah Palin's ongoing attack on wolves and other wildlife in Alaska via her savage aerial hunting program. Naturalists and renowned conservationists from all over the country have denounced this program as unethical, inhumane and unnecessary.

So far this year, Palin's program has slaughtered 67 wolves, with over 600 more targeted. She also wants to expand the program to include the killing of black bear sows and their cubs. Please join actress Ashley Judd, Defenders of Wildlife and myself in opposing this violent assault on defenseless animals - a practice that Alaskan voters have twice voted against and Palin has overturned. You can sign the petition to stop the program and support Defender's efforts via the link below for Eye on Palin.

See the video (WARNING: Graphic imagery of wolves being shot and killed):

Is Sarah Palin totally loco? This plsn, to kill off wildlife in this inhumane manner, is crazy. I'm glad the McCain-Palin ticket didn't win.

Don't even get me started on that woman. How she could have risen to the levels she has is beyond my comprehension.

I agree! As much as they'd like to tout her as step forward for women, I think she's unfit for office. Her record concerning wildlife and the enviornment is horrific. Recently she wanted to give gas and oil leases to a big company that has already been cited four times for polluting Cook Inlet, where the beluga whales live.

Sooooo... where the hell are animals supposed to live? We're the ones pushing into their territory and invading their homes, not the other way around!
