Earth First! Fist, Volume 15

Graham, Don, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 15, no. 2 (21 December 1994). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal John Green brings news from Alaska regarding the suspension of killing wolves. In addition, Carolyn Moran, the editor of magazine Talking Leaves, discusses tree-free paper and waste, and Judi Bari reveals the secret history of tree spiking. 

Reacting to tremendous public outcry against their methods and incompetence, on December 1 the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) indefinitely suspended this winter’s wolf-kill. In a disgusting incident which probably typifies the state’s methods, four wolves were caught in wire snares and left to struggle. One of them chewed off its own leg.
