The animal rights group Defenders of Wildlife has included Alaska Department of Fish and Game photos from recent aerial wolf hunting in a new video call to its members to oppose the hunts. The group says it obtained the photos through a public records request after the state tried to use copyright law to prevent their release. DOW believes the public has a right to know.
WARNING: WARNING: These GRAPHIC PHOTOS show dead wolves -- the raw, horrible aftermath of Alaska's out-of-control aerial wolf-killing program.
On March 14, 2009 Alaska wildlife officials used helicopters and spotter planes to carry out Governor Sarah Palin's escalating wolf-killing program. The operation claimed the lives of 84 wolves -- and the killing only stopped when officials couldn't find any more wolves in the area.

I received this in an email from Defenders but didn't want to watch it. I did today and I'm sorry I did. It just really breaks my heart. Even the pilot knows it's not right by what he said. Alaska is out of hand and they tell lies big ones. Yes, there were no pups for us to save this year because they killed all of the Mama's. It had nothing to do if we were AZA certified or accredited, there were just no Wolf pups to save and they made that the reality.
