Palin Begins Aerial Slaughter of Wolves, Poisoning of Pups

This sad and disgusting news came in this morning from Defenders of Wildlife. Please help get the word out, and donate if you can. Thanks

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s cruel aerial slaughter has suddenly escalated.
Last week, Palin’s henchmen killed 84 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.
Wolves are being slaughtered in record numbers. Please make an emergency donation to help us stop Palin’s killing frenzy and shine the national spotlight on her brutal massacre.
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. Ironically, the state ended its effort just one day later.

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.
Please make an emergency donation today to help underwrite our state court action and advocacy on Capitol Hill and to expand our Eye on Palin campaign through our new ad.
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.
