Sarah Palin Escalates Bloody War on Wolves

Defenders of Wildlife / March 20, 2009

This week, at least 66 wolves have been killed by aerial gunners with high-powered rifles in helicopters near Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve. And, under new policies approved by Governor Sarah Palin's Board of Game, wolf pups could be gassed to death in their dens in the weeks ahead


Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's cruel aerial slaughter has suddenly escalated.

This week, Palin's henchmen have killed 66 wolves, using helicopters, spotter planes and aerial gunners. To make matters even worse, Palin's Board of Game has approved the use of poison gas and deadly snares to kill defenseless wolf pups and their families in and around their dens.

To stop the killing, we...

Supported emergency legal efforts in state court to halt or delay the helicopter assault on wolves near the Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve, near the area made famous by the 1890s Alaska Gold Rush.
Are working on Capitol Hill with our champion Congressman George Miller of California to win cosponsors for the Protect America's Wildlife (PAW) Act to end Palin's barbaric aerial killing and prevent programs like it from spreading to other states; and
Are raising public awareness in the media to Palin's horrible wolf-killing programs in newspapers, on radio and television across the country.

In just a few weeks, Governor Palin is scheduled to appear in Indianapolis. With your emergency help, we can run this ad and ensure that citizens in Indiana and the national media covering her appearance learn the terrible truth of what Palin and her killing thugs have been up to over the last few weeks.

We need to raise $185, 000 by next Friday to run our ad and expand the Eye on Palin campaign. Please make your donation today.

We can win this fight with your compassionate help. Please send whatever caring contribution you can today.  Thank you for all you do.
