14 and Counting by yuumei 14 and Counting by yuumei
My tribute to the 14 wolf pups and countless other wildlife who lost their lives the barbaric programs by Sarah Palin. [link]

You can help stop this by donating or signing a petition [link] and yes, it does work. The Defenders of Wildlife and other organizations like the Sierra Club have successfully sued and won numerous court cases against the government for animal cruelty.

Feel free to post this picture and the message on your forum, blog, MySpace, even your own dA account. I give you full permission to use this picture to help spread the news.

NOTE: This has nothing to do with the election or abortion. I'm not telling you who to vote for. This is about stopping Palin's Alaskan Fish and Game department from illegal slaughter of innocent wildlife! Stay on topic!

~*~* More Info *~*~.

Denning, the act of “grabbing (14) frightened young pups and one-by-one blowing their brains out with a pistol,” was outlawed decades ago, but the Alaskan Fish and Game department tried to hide that after committing the crime. . ~ quote by Alaska wolf biologist Gordon Haber who opposes denning and publicized the crime that the killers tried to hide.

However, Sarah Palin’s department of Fish and Game, believe that the low caribou and moose population was cause by wolf predation. Their solution? Kill the wolves! And thus 800 wolves have been shot, usually from a helicopter [link] called aerial hunting, in the past four years. Even though Alaskans have voted down aerial hunting TWO TIMES, Plain’s department continued their slaughter regardless of the Alaskan’s wishes. They call it population control which is BS.

As an Environmental Science major student of University of California Berkeley, I find wolf population control, aerial hunting, and denning to be extremely STUPID (not to mention cruel. How would you like to be shot from a helicopter and your entire family slaughtered?)

Ever heard of the predator-prey cycle? [link] Basically, increasing predator population (wolves) cause decrease in prey population (caribou). With less food to eat, the predator population would naturally decline. Thus with less predator, the prey population would naturally increase once more which cause an increase predator. This is the natural cycle that drives evolution. Each time when there are too many predators, the preys are put under greater natural selection; only the fittest escape predation. Each time when there are not enough preys, the predators are put under greater natural selection; only the fittest can find enough food. This is a NATURAL CYCLE, so why are humans disrupting evolution by randomly slaughtering entire packs of wolves regardless of their fitness? If any species of animals need population control, it’s the human population [link]

Again, if you oppose this barbaric slaughter of innocent pups and other wildlife, spread the word, sign a petition, or donate

There is probably more to this when politics is involved.
