Friends of Animals Pads its Pockets,
Doesn't Fund True Conservation

of Animals is threatening our way of life, our wellbeing and
our state revenues over a few wolves. Meanwhile, 328 black
bear were killed in New Jersey this season and there was nothing
said by Friends of Animals? I would think that 328 black bear
in a small area like New Jersey would have been more important
than 40 wolves in a state more than twice the size of Texas.
have spoken to many real biologists here in Alaska and they
have shown it takes a five-year program to cause a real reduction
in the wolf population to allow recovery of the prey populations.
It is not like the McGrath wolves are endangered by man. If
anything they will cause a crash in their own population by
over-hunting of their own prey.
desire to fund salaries at Friends of Animals and other animal
rights organizations is the bottom line. Name where Friends
of Animals has funded real conservation. Show the land bought
and environment preserved by Friends of Animals. Show the
programs that are teaching true conservation funded by any
environmentalist organization. You cannot explain where the
millions of dollars they collect have been used for conservation.
Friends of Animals has interfered with the state biologists
and the proper management of our natural resources.
