‘Defenders Of WildLife Action Fund’ Attacks Sarah Palin Over Alaska’s Aerial Wolf Killing Program With New Graphic Video

by Trendy

Defenders Of WildLife Action Fund is an organization dedicated to protecting wildlife and native plants. According to their mission statement, the Wildlife action fund “provides a powerful voice in Washington to Americans who value our conservation heritage. Through grassroots lobbying, issue advocacy and political campaigns, the Action Fund champions those laws and lawmakers that protect wildlife and wild places while working against those that do them harm.”

The Defenders of WildLife Action Fund has now launched a video ad attacking Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin over her support for the Aerial Wolf Killing Program in Alaska. The fund has raised a decent amount of money and is now buying ad space on TV in the battleground states of Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Wisconsin, Virginia and Ohio. The video ad will be shown to viewers also during the Vice Presidential debate between Sarah Palin and Joe Biden.

Defenders Of WildLife Action Fund’s take on Sarah Palin’s promoting Alaska’s Aerial Hunting Program as obtained from their website :

Governor Palin is an active promoter of Alaska’s aerial hunting program whereby wolves and bears are shot from the air or chased by airplanes to the point of exhaustion before the pilot lands the plane and a gunner shoots the animals point blank.

* Palin offered a $150 bounty for wolves to entice hunters to kill more wolves in certain parts of the state, with hunters having to present a wolf’s foreleg to collect the bounty.
* She actively opposed a ballot measure campaign seeking to end the aerial hunting of wolves by private hunters and approved a $400,000 state-funded campaign aimed at swaying people’s votes on the issue.
* She also introduced legislation to make it easier to kill wolves and bears and which would have also removed the aerial hunting initiative from the ballot and block the ability of citizens to vote on the issue.
* The Board of Game, which she appoints, has approved the killing of black bear sows with cubs as part of the program and expanded the aerial control programs.
* The media is currently looking into reports that state officials implementing one of the aerial wolf killing programs illegally killed five-week old wolf pups just outside their dens.

Here is the video ad created by the fund against Sarah Palin’s anti-wildlife policies:
