Exclamation point junkie Jim Hoft is incredulous that Defenders of Wildlife is running ads against Caribou Barbie in Florida!!!1!excited!

AhroooOOOOOoooh!
The libs are pulling out all of the stops.
While the Obama Camp threatens TV stations for showing NRA ads…
A new lib group is bashing Governor Palin over hunting laws in Alaska:


"Do we really want a vice president who sanctions such savagery?"
…Yes!

The ads are playing in several swing states including Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, and Florida.
(Wolf hunting ads in Florida?)

Five second search on teh google:

The Red Wolf has long ears and smooth coat with long legs. It lives through the south-eastern parts of the United States, from Texas to Florida.

A couple of points:

Hard as it may be for Hoft to figure this out there are hunters (many of whom left the NRA when it was taken over by the LaPierre "gimme guns, lotsa guns" little wee-wee crowd) who don’t consider blasting away at animals from a Piper Cub to be….hmmmm… what’s thAT word… oh yes…"sporting". It sure as hell isn’t hunting anymore than Dick Cheney’s canned hunts.

Vice President Dick Cheney went pheasant shooting in Pennsylvania in December 2003, but unlike most of his fellow hunters across America, he didn’t have to spend hours or even days tramping the fields and hedgerows in hopes of bagging a brace of birds for the dinner table.

Upon his arrival at the exclusive Rolling Rock Club in Ligonier Township, gamekeepers released 500 pen-raised pheasants from nets for the benefit of him and his party. In a blaze of gunfire, the group—which included legendary Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach and U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), along with major fundraisers for Republican candidates—killed at least 417 of the birds. According to one gamekeeper who spoke to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Cheney was credited with shooting more than 70 of the pen-reared fowl.

After lunch, the group shot flocks of mallard ducks, also reared in pens and shot like so many live skeet. There’s been no report on the number of mallards the hunting party killed, but it’s likely that hundreds fell.

Rolling Rock is an exclusive private club for the wealthy with a world-class golf course and a closed membership list. It is also a "canned hunting" operation—a place where fee-paying hunters blast away at released animals, whether birds or mammals, who often have no reasonable chance to escape. Most are "no kill, no pay" operations where patrons only shells out funds for the animals they kill.

That’s not hunting. That’s sociopathic behavior.

Point number two: Accurate or not, many people see wolves as just big dogs, and seeing what appears to be the neighbors german shepard running in fear through the snow while some slack-jawed yokel yucks it up while trying to gun it down doesn’t play well in many households, guns or not.

The fact that people like Hoft think that "savagery" is a winning hand doesn’t surprise me. Because when all you have is a gun, everything looks like a target.
