EnvironMENTALism is a Profound Sickness and Perversion

*Editor’s Note* – The Izembek National Wildlife Refuge is 315,000 acres. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service advertises for hunters to travel to this refuge to hunt moose, bear, ducks and geese. There are 50 miles of existing roads in this refuge. 11 more are needed to connect to a village where emergency personnel can get help.

The residents of a small fishing village next door, have tried for years to get a single lane, dirt road built through the refuge to save lives in cases of emergency. People die because of the difficulty getting out.

We live in the 21st century. One might think the notion that living remotely may mean certain death can more easily be overcome. Not so when you are dealing with a rigged government, enmeshed in radical environmentalism that places the welfare of animals over that of people.

Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, in response to King Cove resident’s request to approve a plan for a road, that involved giving up 200-times the amount of land in exchange for the road, said, “I’ve listened to your stories. Now I have to listen to the animals.”

Having the full authority to accept or reject a plan, passed in a Congressional omnibus bill, Jewell tossed the lives of people aside in favor of protecting wildlife.

What kind of a Godless society have we become? How perverse!

The animals had the last word. “Building a road through the Refuge would cause irreversible damage not only to the Refuge itself, but to the wildlife that depend on it,” Jewell said in a December 2013 statement, citing a four-year environmental-impact assessment conducted by her department. “Izembek is an extraordinary place — internationally recognized as vital to a rich diversity of species — and we owe it to future generations to think about long-term solutions that do not insert a road through the middle of this Refuge and designated wilderness.”

Obama Still Pushing Fake Climate Change – YOU LIE!

“The time to heed the critics and the cynics and the deniers is past,” the president said.Unless the world acts more aggressively and more quickly, he said, “entire nations will find themselves under severe, severe problems: More drought. More floods. Rising sea levels. Greater migration. More refugees. More scarcity. More conflict.”

Authorities want to talk to man who donned bear costume and harassed bears in Alaska

*Editor’s Suggestion* – Why don’t authorities buy this person more costumes and turn him loose to “harass” more feeding bears? Why do we protect these idiots?

Authorities want to talk to a man who donned a fairly realistic bear costume – head and all – and wore it when harassing a mother bear and two cubs trying to feed on pink salmon in an Alaska river.

Wolf Population in Denali Low, Blamed on Hunting and Trapping

*Scroll for Updates*

The Alaska Dispatch carried an article about a petition generated to shut down hunting and trapping in boundary areas of Denali Park because wolves in the park have dropped from a population of 143 to 50 in about 8 years. But hunting and trapping isn’t the problem.

It was great that the author pointed out how well the fish and game department managed wildlife in a Game Management Unit adjacent to the park but never would come out with an explanation of why there was no prey left for the wolves inside Denali. The author states that, “When prey is abundant, wolves flourish. When prey populations are low, wolf populations become low.” A true statement but what allows or what is responsible for prey populations becoming low? That’s the most important question that should be answered.

Anyone who knows wolves understands that the savage predator can destroy a prey base and then move on. Once the prey base is gone, basically one, or any combination of events, can occur – 1. Wolves move to other areas where prey exist and do the same thing. 2. Wolves die from starvation and disease. 3. Wolves resort to cannibalism.

Chances are pretty good that what is going on in Denali is that the wolves, and they are protected in the park, are effectively destroying their own prey base and thus themselves. If wolf populations have been cut by nearly two-thirds, it might allow for a short period for prey to respond positively, provided it isn’t below sustainable levels, which will bring wolves back for a time to bring the prey species back down very low again. This could be labeled a predator pit depending upon other factors.

The author also points out that the adjacent Game Management Unit, a mass of acreage considerably smaller than Denali, is being perpetuated by wildlife officials for 10,000 moose, 300 wolves and still humans can harvest moose meat. Denali is a protected park and we see the results.

Also of note: This article shows the author’s discovery to two things – people’s complete ignorance of wolves, wolf management and ecosystems and the obvious bias toward anti hunting and trapping and NOT pro wolf. Some of the comments he reveals are pretty funny.

*Update* (4/2/2015 10:01 am) – I was sent another article from Alaska that quotes the Alaska Board of Game director as saying, “[L]ow numbers of moose and caribou were to blame for low wolf population levels.”
