Parnell's Board of Game has no credibility

Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce once said, “It does not require many words to speak the truth.”

 

Gov. Sean Parnell’s Board of Game is a sham; its goal is to put moose and caribou populations on steroids by expanded killing of wolves and bears by whatever methods they can get away with. The long-term health of the ecosystem is irrelevant to this Board of Game.

Voltaire once said, “Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.”

I demand that Parnell declare an immediate moratorium on predator control until the state of Alaska’s scientific justification has been peer-reviewed by an independent group of scientists.
