Re: E-M:/ My source in Alaska

Defenders of Wildlife have a comprehensive page on Sarah Palin including a letter signed by dozens of scientists encouraging her to apply  science based wildlife management to the state's policy decision. Apparently she supports aerial shooting of wolves. Running them to exhaustion.... then shooting them.
Snip from one of the links:

In the latest battle against wildlife in Alaska, Gov. Sarah Palin proposed a new bill that would make it even easier to kill wolves and bears.

Palin’s proposal would eliminate the requirement that a game-management plan be in place prior to beginning an aerial predator-control program that tracks and shoots wolves and bears from airplanes. The bill would leave all decisions about public hunting with airplanes to the discretion of the Board of Game—not to wildlife managers who would apply scientific standards to ensure there is no long-term harm to the ecosystem.

“Rather than addressing the terrible policies of the Murkowski administration, which ignored Alaskan voters who twice passed ballot measures to halt the barbaric practice of aerial gunning, Gov. Palin’s legislation would pave the way for the Alaska Board of Game to greatly expand the deadly control programs,” says Tom Banks, Defenders’ Alaska associate
