Norfolk, Va. – Please see the following statement from PETA President Ingrid Newkirk regarding the National Park Service rolling back hunting and trapping regulations in Alaska:
This dirty, scurrilous move will mean that black bear mothers who carefully raise, guide, and fiercely protect their cubs will see them gunned down right in their dens—their homes. If Alaska is so desperate to return to a lawless time when you could poison, bait, smoke out, or do whatever you wanted to animals, maybe it should return to the time before it was a state.
