wolves in alaska

By a largely party-line vote Tuesday, the Senate approved a bill that repeals Obama-era hunting restrictions on national wildlife refuges in Alaska. The House already voted last month to abolish those restrictions — which were instituted by the Fish and Wildlife Service in 2016 to protect predator species from hunters — and so the bill now heads to the desk of President Trump, who is widely expected to sign it.

The FWS rule facing repeal explicitly prohibited many kinds of “predator control” on the 16 federally owned refuges in Alaska. That prohibition included a ban on the aerial hunting, live trapping or baiting of predators such as bears and wolves — as well as on killing those predators while near their dens or their cubs.

This makes me physically ill. What is happening? Republicans didn’t succeed in putting to vote a bill that makes it legal to kill poor people, so congress went after defenseless animals. Open season on HIBERNATING animals. Sleeping fucking animals. Who wants to start a defense fund for an animal security force that waits, ARMED, outside dens and evens the playing field? We have a right to bear arms, it’s only fair…. LET’S ARM THE BEARS!! #armbears
