Wolf Attack on a Human: Only a Palin Story Would Get More Replies
There was a tragic event in a small Alaska village a couple of days ago; a young female teacher went on a run outside the village after work. In Alaska “outside the village” is wilderness that would be unimaginable to most of you. A few hours later a couple of men returning to the village on their snow machines saw blood in the trail and a pair of gloves. They stopped saw the bloody trail where something had been dragged into the woods and found the young woman’s body, her throat torn open and other “evidence of predation” on her body to quote the original report. Today the Alaska State Troopers released their report in which they concluded after the State Medical Examiner’s autopsy that the young woman had been attacked, killed, and partially eaten by two or more wolves. This is reputedly the first documented human death as the result of a wolf attack.
And now there is outrage! We’ve endured PETA and other crazies for years over wolf hunting issues. The greenies and animal rights types, most of whom live in cities with no non-human predators, seem to genuinely believe that a 125 pound wolf is just a cuddly creature like a domestic dog. They aren’t, and every PETA member should have to watch a film of a pack of wolves taking a moose – over and over until they retch out breakfast, lunch, and dinner. So, linked is the Anchorage Daily News’ story and the reader comments. Since Palin’s rise to prominence, the ADN has a large Outside audience, so I don’t know how much of the commentary is our crazies and how much is yours. Well, some of the Alaskans are pretty obvious; they’re the ones who want to go kill all the wolves around Chignik Lake, Alaska. So, here’s the story: http://www.adn.com/2010/03/11/1179368/teacher-likely-killed-by-wolves.html
Please keep this young woman, her family, and her friends in your thoughts and prayers; I can’t think of many worse ways to go.
