Promoting a barbaric act

Dear Editor:

Have you ever heard of aerial hunting? It’s a brutal practice. Wolves and bears are shot from flying aircraft, or chased to exhaustion then killed at point-blank range.

Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican nominee for vice president, promotes this barbaric practice, exploiting a loophole in the Federal Airborne Hunting Act to allow private wolf and bear killers to shoot down these animals using aircraft. We need to get the word out about this.

There is a powerful video of this practice by Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund which should be seen by every wildlife lover.
