An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Wolf hater Palin and her "tough" image

Ostensibly this kind of logic doesn’t sicken many in the world today but I feel this kind of thinking is completely nauseating!

In March, under Palin, the Alaskan Board of Game authorised the shooting of wolves from helicopters – something which hadn’t been done for twenty years.

This led to the killing of 14 wolf pups in a remote peninsula, some 800 miles south west of Anchorage. First their mothers were killed from the air, then the orphaned pups were discovered in their dens and were dragged out and shot.

Environmentalist claim the killings were illegal and were done as part of an initiative to boost caribou populations for the benefit of hunters.

State officials, however, insist the shootings were humanitarian, saying the pups would have suffered and died without the care of their parents. (Oh Yeah!! Then Why kill the parents? Only to kill the kids as well??)

The assault on wolves didn’t end there. Last year, Palin put up a $150 bounty on wolf paws to encourage hunters to kill more of the creatures. She also spent $400,000 of public money to defeat a proposed ban on the aerial hunting of wolves for sport.

Chances are that if this lady makes it to the top of the ladder, this country will actually “go to dogs”! Honestly. At this time in its lifespan.. what US needs is someone who is very careful about what needs to be done and how the world needs to be engaged!

    Well, she wanted to authorize killing of wolves in Alaska(BTW wolves are actually endangered in most other parts of the world) to allow deer and other grazing animals to grow in number so that ‘sportsmen’/hunters could have an abundant supply of ‘game’ to hunt.

    Palin is a lifelong member of the gun-loving National Rifle Association. The NRA is the same organization which lobbies hard to prevent any legal restraints on purchase of automatic weapons like machine guns by any US resident. The NRA through its ultra-powerful lobby in Washinton opposes any laws that requires gun manufacturers to put safety locks on guns (because it will make guns expensive). The blood of hundred of young school-children is on this organization that Palin loves to defend which is the same with most Republicans.
