This is a topic that is very important to me. Wolves are a passion for me. I've studied them and the different populations--Yellowstone and Greater Yellowstone, Alaska, Isle Royale Nat'l Park--for years. This video shows what Palin and the Alaska Board of Game--made up of hunters and guides mainly--call "predator management/control." It is, in fact, not predator control. Sure, some of that has to be done as well--but it should be based on pure science and good numbers. This is based on money and politics, hoping to artificially inflate the moose numbers, so as to continue attracting huge revenues from out-of-state trophy hunters. Palin recently made it so the Board of Game can make all of their "management" policies without consulting state biologists or the Dept. of Fish and Game. Is this the trend she'd live by as VP or, gasp, President?
