As of March 21, 2017, politicians in the Senate have voted to allow human hunters to kill grizzly bears, wolves and other predators in Alaskan wildlife refuges. The word is out that these officials want to eliminate predators so that caribou, deer and other prey animals can be increased for human hunters to kill.
A wildlife refuge is not a refuge when human hunters are allowed to kill animals there! The intrusive and catastrophically damaging action of the federal government is creating havoc in all the efforts to protect wild animals in preserves. The majority of people in this country haven’t even been informed about the “new” refuge law and are not being given a chance to stop it!
If the president, Donald Trump, does not veto this stupid and sadistic plan to kill predators in Alaskan wildlife refuges, a lot of the progress in wildlife management will be lost. The public lands where the wildlife refuges are located belong to all American citizens, and the federal government is not only betraying the public’s trust, but it is also disregarding all the scientifically established methods of managing and protecting wildlife.
Alaska has a bad reputation when it comes to protecting wildlife. Basically, the conservation agents are acting like “traitors” who are more concerned with appeasing hunters than in protecting wildlife. (Sarah Palin, the former Governor of Alaska, opposed measures that would protect polar bears.) Misled officials have been mainly concerned with making money at the expense of sacrificing native wildlife. Irresponsible politicians in Alaska have gone out of their way to welcome and accommodate hunters from all over the world.
The corrupted sports industry has cashed in on the unnecessary killing of wild animals; it is an organized racket where money made from selling hunting licenses is being spent on producing more animals for hunters to kill. This operation is an endless cycle of mutilation and death for wild animals. The sports people have tried to glamorize the slaughter of wild animals as being a fashionable outdoor recreation.
The National Rifle Association (NRA), the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and the Safari Club have backed the bad decision to overturn the wildlife refuge laws in Alaska. If the feds have their way, a death sentence will be handed out to all the grizzly bears, wolves and other predators in Alaskan wildlife refuges.
It is obvious that the communists have a controlling influence in the government and are calling the shots for the NRA and a lot of other organizations. It’s also obvious that the “subversives” in the government are the people who proposed the plans to allow hunters to kill grizzly bears in vast regions of Yellowstone National Park. The reds are using the despicable slaughter of defenseless and innocent animals to cause dissension and division here in America.
The bloodlust of overkill and the mistreatment of wild animals has been allowed to be a policy of state in the government. The plan to create killing fields in wildlife refuges is deplorable and intolerable; it violates every code of justice and is a heinous crime against nature. The subversive politicians who are involved in this criminal enterprise must be held accountable for their crimes.
