Tanya Writes About Aerial Hunting and Sarah Palin
I've already written my thoughts on this VP nomination but here's more. The picture in the LA Times of Palin gloating over the carcass of a gorgeous caribou broke my heart. At the end of the blog, there's a link to a video depicting her horrific support of the aerial hunting of wolves and bears. As for me, I'm not voting for any woman who wilfully kills animals.
"Tonight Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will accept the Republican nomination for Vice President, a position that would put her second in line to be President of the United States. But before she accepts, I need your help to let America know where she stands on the brutal and needless aerial hunting of wolves and bears.
Watch our new video on Palin’s awful record and share it with everyone you know who cares abut wildlife.
Warning: This video is extremely disturbing. It contains graphic images of aerial hunting of wolves -- a brutal and needless practice that Governor Palin has fought hard to promote and expand.
Despite strong scientific, ethical and public opposition to aerial hunting, Governor Palin has…
Proposed paying a $150 bounty for the left foreleg of each dead wolf.
Approved a $400,000 state-funded propaganda campaign to promote aerial hunting.
Introduced legislation to make it even easier to use aircraft to hunt wolves and bears.
If you care about wildlife, please watch this video right now -- and then share it with every friend, neighbor, conservationist and wildlife lover you know.
Tonight, all eyes will be on Governor Sarah Palin. Let’s make sure the whole nation knows about her awful record on aerial hunting and protecting wildlife.
