Dear pbnb reader,
The state of Alaska plans to allow the killing of bears, wolves and other wildlife by baiting, snaring, killing mother bears with cubs and killing wolves raising pups on national wildlife refuges.
It must be stopped.
In 1994, Alaska adopted a slate of “predator control” measures intended to artificially inflate moose and other game animal numbers so Alaska could sell more hunting licenses!
Thankfully, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has proposed new regulations to head off the state’s reckless scheme.
Please take action today and support Alaska’s majestic wildlife!
Alaska’s cruel “take no prisoners” approach includes:
*Killing wolves and pups during the spring and summer “denning” season;
*Gunning down mother bears and their cubs;
*Baiting and snaring any black or brown bear or cub; and
*Airborne shooting of bears and wolves by state agency personnel.
How could the state even contemplate activities like these on America’s refuges? It’s critical that FWS prohibit these sorts of practices on refuges.
Please take action today.
Thank you for helping to defend the wildlife we love!
