Walrus in Trouble Too

Critter News

I'm finally getting caught up on some reading and came across this article in the Defenders of Wildlife wildlife. I'm very proud of supporting Defenders because I think they do great work and they have a really good magazine too. Surprisingly, they are overlooked in discussions of Arctic species threatened by global warming. Very depressing sometimes though. The summer issue had a good article about walruses.

Palin Supports Brutal Method of Killing Wolves

Critter News

Here is a video from Defenders of Wildlife that shows the method (it's under 3 minutes). Here is more video from Current on the subject (this one is a full 10 minutes), but explains how this is mainly for the benefit of trophy hunters, not subsistence hunters that Palin claims it is for. 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.

Why Palin?

Critter News

The following is not necessarily representative of ALL of Critter News. Why has John McCain chosen Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska, as a running mate?

If McCain gets elected, then I can see the future of the Endangered Species Act, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of Agriculture, Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, etc.
