Alaska DFG Will Not Investigate Palin's Caribou Hunt
While most of the ruckus over Sarah Palin's reality TV caribou hunt seemed to be focused on her shooting prowess, some were pushing for her to be investigated over the amount of meat that was taken from the downed caribou. CBC.ca has posted a story regarding the complaints and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game's position on the hunt.
...Palin's father said he would not gut the freshly killed caribou. "We're going to quarter it and take him home, so I don't gut him," he said on camera. That decision surprised Riley Woodford, a spokesman with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Juneau. "Why didn't he want to gut it, and why didn't he want the organs?" Woodford asked. "That's even more perplexing, that someone who seems to know what they're doing would do that."
The source of the complaints seems to arise from the fact that Sarah and her hunting group did not appear to pack out the caribou's edible organs.
