eBay Promotes Wolf Killing

In April, online trading company eBay teamed up with Castle Rock

Outfitters, an Alaskan hunting outfitter specializing in organized trips

to kill wildlife such as grizzly bears, caribou, and wolves.

eBay’s

promotion of Castle Rock Outfitters’ latest wolf-killing venture touts it

as “an

incredible opportunity to see Alaska AND hunt the Alaskan wolf.” What

worries wolf protectionists the most is that the hunt comes perilously

close to the Denali National Park, where efforts have been ongoing to

protect the Toklat and the Sanctuary wolf packs (see

Issue144), whose members frequently roam beyond park boundaries and are

killed by hunters and trappers. Even more worrisome, perhaps, is eBbay’s

insistence that their promotion of calculated killing is morally

acceptable because it falls within the boundaries of what is legal.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Contact eBay and let them know that you find their promotion of wolf

killing to be irresponsible and unacceptable. Address your letters to

Margaret Whitman, CEO of eBay, and sent them to:
