Friends of Animals Hosts Demonstrations Against Aerial Hunting

The aerial wolf hunting program has prompted demonstrations nationwide and a call for a tourism boycott of Alaska.

Saturday the Connecticut based organization Friends of Animals hosted its 52nd howl-in Sitka.

They are holding eight demonstrations this weekend in Las Vegas, Florida, Oregon and Ohio.

Friends of Animals say 60,000 postcards have been distributed and mailed to Gov. Murkowski.

The postcards include a pledge that the signer will not travel to Alaska until the wolf control program is cancelled and that in Alaska residents are reminding the Governor that they voted against aerial wolf killing twice.

The organization hopes that putting economic and political pressure on the Murkowski administration will help put an end to aerial wolf hunting.  Murkowski has said in the past that will not happen.
