VANCOUVER – It’s not Miley Cyrus’s twerking that’s raising eyebrows in British Columbia but her provocative political dance around the issue of the province’s controversial wolf kill.

The American pop singer has taken to social media, urging fans to sign an online petition originally posted Jan. 15, 2015, calling the helicopter hunt a “tax-payer funded kill program of one of our most iconic species.”

She says she is “shameless” when making changes in a world that at times needs to re-evaluate its morals when dealing with animals.

The petition was posted by Pacific Wild, a non-profit group led by photographer Ian McAllister who was one of the key figures in the fight to preserve the Great Bear Rainforest on the central coast.

The group responded by thanking Cyrus on social media for her help.

The provincial government approved the hunt earlier this year in South Selkirks and South Peace regions because it said wolves were preying on caribou herds with declining populations.

Hunters were allowed to shoot as many as 184 wolves but when the hunt ended months later the province said less than half the animals had been shot.
