KINSHIP CIRCLE PRIMARY – PERMISSION TO CROSS-POST AS WRITTEN

9/27/08: Palin’s Pro-Death Platform On Animals

Next Thursday, October 2, Washington University in St. Louis hosts the vice presidential debate featuring Republican Sarah Palin and Democrat Joe Biden. With the spotlight on vice-prez nominees, you have a great opportunity to send comments to newspapers, blogs and discussions. Let voters know about Governor Sarah Palin’s relentless assault on wildlife and environment.

Whatever your political affiliation, Palin is clearly NOT the candidate for animals….and animals are the focus of this list.

Below are talking points and ideas for your comments, but NEVER COPY AND SEND A FORM LETTER to a newspaper or other media. As soon as an “organized campaign” is suspected, comments are discarded.

SARAH PALIN: NO FRIEND TO WOLVES

======================

Brenda Shoss’ Letter to the Editor
DO NOT COPY THIS LETTER
DO use it to jumpstart ideas…and send comments to your paper, news blog…

Aerial killing of predators: fair conservation or inhumane?
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Fair conservation or inhumane? Aerial wolf hunts have nothing to do with conversation and everything to do with boosting moose and caribou populations for Alaska’s lucrative hunting industry.

A hunter in a low-flying aircraft aims his assault rifle at terrified wolves with no camouflage against a backdrop of white snow. A same-day airborne hunter harasses wolves till exhausted, then corners them in snow banks and fires away at close range. Is this inhumane? Duh.

In 1972, Congress enacted the Federal Airborne Hunting Act to ban use of an aircraft to “shoot for the purpose of capturing or killing any bird, fish, or other animal” or to “harass any bird, fish, or other animal.” Yet Governor Palin, and previous Governor Frank Murkowsi, permit private hunters to slaughter wolves from aircrafts under the guise of “conservation.”

Alaskan voters passed ballot measures in both 1996 and 2000 to ban aerial and land-and-shoot wolf hunts. In one of many polls (this one conducted by Dittman Research Corporation) responders, including hunters, disapproved of aerial predator-control as a system to augment moose and caribou numbers.

Ultimately, politicians have failed to produce a definitive scientific assessment that justifies aerial wolf hunts. In fact, many studies attest to the valuable predatory role wolves play in an ecosystem. Wolves help sustain caribou and moose herds by eliminating old, feeble, and sick individuals and fortifying gene pools over time. Aerial gunning, on the other hand, has yet to undergo site-specific studies to measure its effect on local ecosystems.

Sarah Palin calls hovering in planes to blow away wolves a “safari.” I call her bounty offer of 0 for a front leg of a freshly killed wolf “sadistic.” But Palin is determined to eke out every last penny before her state’s fish and wildlife die out. This summer, Palin poured 0,000 of taxpayer money into her mission to defeat Measure 2 — an initiative to ban aerial wolf hunts as sport. Those of us who dispute sportsmen bombing wildlife from planes simply don’t “understand rural Alaska.”

Sarah Palin is the one who fails to understand that violence against nature is not an effective campaign tool. Most voters are savvy enough to oppose Palin’s pro-death platform on animals and environment.

But as that greatest ofmodern wars was near its close, I did not even see the bigend of the last of it. I came to Kansas in 1866, stoppingfor a time in the old Delaware Indian Reserve, southwestof Fort Leavenworth. From among the Delawares Iwent out to northwest Kansas, in 1872, and took up aclaim on the Prairie Dog, in Decatur county. I trapped,and hunted buffalo, until the Indians stole my stock,when I had to quit hunting long enough to get even, anda httle ahead, of the redskins. In summer-time I wouldput in my time improving my homestead; in winter,hunting and trapping. But when Kansas passed herdrastic hunting law, concerning the buffalo-hide hunters,I drifted to the Panhandle of Texas, in 1876 (after takingin the Philadelphia Centennial); for the next three andone-half years you have had a pretty good trail of me.(297) 298 THE BORDER AND THE BUFFALO.
