It's so easy to kill a helpless animal, isn't it? Especially up here in gun-crazy Alaska. Just aim your gun out an open window at an eight pound chihuahua just following his natural instincts or on a helicopter at collared wolves just following their food. Because we're Alaskans! We're mighty men (and women) of the Great Land! And they're just, well, animals. And nothing matters more than what we want and we kill anything that gets in our way, right?
It's no wonder we have one of the highest rates of animal abuse - to rank right up there with domestic abuse - in the nation.
Are you proud, Alaska?
