More on wildlife

I found this in one of the comments at Mudflats and thought it would be good to share:

"Support the PAW Act - End Alaska’s Aerial Hunting Program!
Target: U.S. House of Representatives
Sponsored by:

Alaska is truly our nation’s last frontier. It is also the last place in the U.S. where a few hunters still use aircraft to chase and kill wolves. They shoot these animals from the air or chase them to exhaustion before landing and shooting them point blank.

Congress passed a law over thirty five years ago to put an end to aerial hunting. But Alaska is exploiting a loophole in federal law to resume the practice, not only for wolves, but bears as well. Hundreds of scientists have condemned what Alaska is doing, even as other states threaten to follow Alaska’s lead. It’s time to stop aerial hunting once and for all.

Rep. George Miller (CA) has introduced the Protect America’s Wildlife (PAW) Act, legislation to close a federal loophole and curb Alaska’s brutal aerial hunting program — and prevent programs like it from spreading to places like the Greater Yellowstone region.

Please urge your Representative to sign on as a co-sponsor to Rep. George Miller’s PAW Act." Here is a Link to the petition.

There are lots of petitions on this page of the Care2 site.

Crystalwolf, I have sent "eye on Palin" an email telling them what I've been doing on the blog and asking if there's more I can do to help their cause.

Thanks for your support and I'm sorry I used such a horrible photo, but sometimes you have to shock people into action!

that photo made me gasp and cry too!

I know, sometimes that's what it takes---the shock of such a pic!

I hope in her next lifetime, maybe she will come back as a wolf.

Karma baby, Karma!
