Help the McNeil Bear Sanctuary off linmits to hunting

Follow the Money

Letters / Fairbanks Daily News-Miner / March 19, 2009

You can tell a lot about the animal rights groups by what they do with the money they raise.

The Defenders of Wildlife, Friends of Animals, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and other animal rights groups have pulled the greenbacks out of the wallets of gullible Americans much the same as a wolf pulls the entrails out of a dying caribou calf (i.e., without much respect for the donor).

They use Alaska as their poster child to save the poor, helpless wolves and bears. The same wolves and bears that took down an estimated 417,000 moose and caribou in Alaska last year (roughly 60 percent of the total productivity of Alaska's estimated 1.1 million moose and caribou).

Ironically, hunters took only about 5 percent (roughly 30,000 animals) of that production for human harvest.

What? You thought hunters took a much larger percentage? And that they all fly around in Super Cubs with out-of-state buddies looking for wolves to pulverize for sport because Sarah Palin told them to?

Hmm. I wonder who came up with that silly idea.

On a related note, please join me in boycotting all Ashley Judd movies until the end of time.
