Save the hibernating bears and wolves in their dens in Alaska

This petition had 4,517 supporters

This has to do with the federal government making it legal for hunters to kill hibernating bears and their cubs in their dens and wolves with their pups in their dens in Alaska.  It also includes helicopter hunting, bear baiting, and other cruel and inhumane ways to kill animals in Alaska.  Of course, the NRA is totally backing this.  Plus, several trophy groups.  Rep. Don Young, who is considered the worst animal villain in congress, created this bill.  This is to tell President Trump to please save the animals in Alaska from being killed in such barbaric ways.

FWS Director Don Ashe stated it perfectly:  

"In the name of hunters and hunting, they have approved shooting of brown and grizzly bears over bait; shooting mother bears with cubs, and even the cubs themselves; targeting bears and wolves from planes; and killing wolves and wolf pups in their dens.

This is not sportsmanship. It is purportedly aimed at increasing populations of caribou and moose but defies modern science of predator-prey relationships. And finally, it is inconsistent with the laws guiding management of our National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska."

We need to fight back on this, and a good starting point is a petition.  Large numbers of people speak louder than words.
