Mixed messages on wolf population

Posted: June 19, 2014 - 4:06pm  |  Updated: June 20, 2014 - 8:47am

Regarding the rescued wolf pups and their temporary home at Alaska Zoo: Mixed emotions? First the Alaska Department of Fish and Game pours out thousands in taxpayer dollars for the wanton and deliberate slaughter of wolf cubs, in their dens under the guise of moose enhancement. Then we turn around with an outpouring of our hearts, as well as an outpouring of more tax money for the rescue and enhancement of five wolf cubs trapped in a forest fire. How ironic!

True enough, irony reflects a state or condition,

the opposite of what is expected, but irony should also have a humorous element, hence the irony.

I think the term John is looking for is hypocrisy, nothing humorous about it.

Not just wolf pups

State can kill off bear cubs and wolf pups, thanks Parnell!
