Recent panel in the Ester Republic: the state of Alaska is full-swing back into the business of aerial wolf killing so as to make the rugged outdoorsy life easier for the folks who like to have their game managed slightly above the level of outdoor skill required to waddle across a Walmart parking lot to the meat section.
Here's a clue on the oft-touted level of "professionalism" within the Department of Fish & Game: killing off the very same animals who provide the supposedly "sound science" behind their carefully calculated sham of a slaughter.
No worries, as long as you're sportin' the camouflage (even if it's winter and you're up in a helicopter) it's open season and open fire on the big, bad wolf. Like I've said before, we're the only state that actually recommends smoking a whole pack.
Add to the mix some blatant good ol' boyism and yee-haw ... "We don't care how they do it in the Lower 48!"
“The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep's throat, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty. Plainly, the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of liberty.” - Abraham Lincoln
