Just heard that Congress passed a bill that allows hunters to shoot wolf pups and hibernating bears in their dens!

What the heck!? Congress just declared war on wildlife. They want to let hunters shoot wolf pups in their dens and kill hibernating bears across Alaska’s protected wilderness.

I am sorry I didn't post this sooner. :(

The bill (H.J.Res.69) green-light brutal hunting practices like shooting wolf pups in their dens or slaughtering bears from aircraft.

The gun lobby helped push this through the house but we must protect the wildlife on Alaska's pristine refuges.
