Sorry but your going to have to find info. other than in video format. I cannot watch videos at the moment. I'm sure this is probably about drilling Alaska or somthing. In that case I agree with Palin that ANWAR should be drilled.

I found the video and read the caption. I don't see what is wrong with hunting from a helicopter, hunting is hunting. If you kill it while sitting in a tree it is just as dead as if you killed it from a helicopter. There are still hunting laws in effect so its not like people are going to make wolves extinct just because they can shoot them from helicopters now.

I understand. As soon as they showed the wolves being shot, I had to stop watching. I did listen though. I was appalled that Palin not only condones the practice but has assisted by paying money for the left paws of all the dead wolves, including the pups.

First of all they don't ALWAYS die when shot from the plane. They follow behind the injured wolf until it falls from exhaustion and then land and kill it. I think it is unconscionable to kill an animal for sport. This is no different than those hunting clubs that use caged animals for hunts. The animals DON'T STAND A CHANCE!!! How is that a sport? I misunderstood you above post and mistakenly thought you had a heart until I saw this post. I guess you don't think animals have feelings, must not own a pet. I feel deep sympathy for you.

Actually I have a dog. Killing an animal for sport is not always bad. Deer begin to overpopulate an area and so hunters keep the population in check.

It is people like you that frustrate every level headed person in America. You looked away when a wolf was being shot. I bet money that you are pro-choice. A person being killed is one thing but a wolf?? It is an animal, get over yourself.

I still don't think you get what I am saying. I have NO problem with HUMANELY killing deer to fight the overpopulation. They do it in the St. Louis area. It is not about the killing but HOW they kill them. I am sorry for you that you can not see how disturbing this is to me and others that the wolves are made to suffer before death. You are correct that I am pro choice and I am not ashamed of it. I had an abortion at 18. I was only 8 weeks pregnant and because of surgery I had at 16, I was advised by my doctor it would be a difficult pregnancy. I made my choice and have never regretted it, although my life was not in danger, the babies' could have been. I since have been very diligent in using birth control and have never again been pregnant. I will not lie I have very often wondered about that baby but I KNOW I did what I had to do for the babies' sake. Who are you to tell me what to do with my body anyway? You can never know what it is like to have to make that choice and judging someone without facts is unfair to people like me.

So you can conciously decide not to give a human being a chance at life and still be disgusted by the inhumane treatment of wolves. INHUMANE, they are animals not humans.

Yes I can. You are very self righteous you know. Very judgmental. I actually feel very sorry for you because it is obvious you will always feel superior to anyone who does not think like you. Have a nice life I am done with you.

So what you want is someone to tell you how horrible those wolves were treated. Sorry not gonna get it from me. Go find some animal activists' shoulder to cry on.
