REAL MEN DON'T SHOOT WOLVES!

Letters to the Editor / Nevada / November 24, 2004

Re: Alaska Board of Game Votes to allow hunters to shoot up to 900 Wolves from Airplanes

U.S. Citizens using airplanes to shoot down defenseless wolves on Alaskan snow fields, personifies America  today. The government's sanctioned killing of 900 wolves in this manner is shocking. Before Bush came to power, this would never have been tolerated by the American public. The Public's complacency now is not all that surprising when you consider U.S. Citizens now turn a blind-eye to American forces in Fallujah shooting down unarmed civilians, targeting hospitals and forcing emergency care patients into the street to die. One must wonder what is the mental state of Americans who get-off by shooting unarmed civilians in Fallujah or defenseless wolves from airplanes trying to cross Alaska's snow fields in winter.

What is the mental state of the Alaska Board of Game that voted for this killing, the aerial shooting of 900 wolves? Is a hunter a real hunter, a real man, if they use an airplane to run down a wolf to exhaustion, then shoot it at point-blank range?

If this is aerial slaughter of 900 wolves is allowed to take place, Americans should consider the current mental state of their country.
