Palin Supports Brutal Method of Killing Wolves

Critter News

The wolves suffer needlessly because hunters simply wound them more often then not firing from an airplane. I understand there may be some instances where predator control is necessary. I'm not an absolutist on this point. Doing it from low flying aircraft, however, is just barbaric. This is what Palin has pushed for. Here is a video from Defenders of Wildlife that shows the method (it's under 3 minutes).

Animal Ethics

21, 2008 To the Editor: The correct response to “The Biggest Beef Recall Ever” is to not just be appalled and sickened at the horrifying treatment of living beings at the Westland/Hallmark Meat Company plant, but to realize that this is almost certainly just the tip of the iceberg, that not just cows are being tortured, but pigs, turkeys, chickens, calves and sheep. 21, 2008 To the Editor: You rightly capture the magnitude of the problem of ensuring safe food products. 21, 2008

Scarlett The Cat: From Homeless To A Hero

4 The Love Of Animals

In 1996 Scarlett saved her five children during the fire and not so long ago, in 2008, she died after a long-term sickness and ensuring consequences of skin burns. The interesting thing is that it was not a first time, when David saved poor animals out of a fire: ten years before he has already taken a wounded dog after the fire to the North Shore Animal League, where he was cured. Three of them are alive even today and one has died from cancer in the same 2008.
