'Sarah Palin's Alaska' In Trouble After Allegedly Violating Wildlife Guidelines

From vice presidential nominee turned reality star? We’d expect nothing less from Sarah Palin.

After just one episode of Palin’s new reality show, aptly titled Sarah Palin’s Alaska, the series is already coming under scrutiny. The show, which premiered Sunday night on TLC, is getting heat from a local Alaskan conservationist for allegedly violating wildlife guidelines. Paint us surprised.

The incident occurred during a family fishing trip where Palin is shown fishing next to a family of protected brown bears (state guidelines require boat passengers fish at least 30 feet from the protected species) and the Alaska Wildlife Alliance are not happy about it.

“It’s clear from the video that she violated the guidelines,” said Alaska Wildlife Alliance director John Toppenberg.

This isn’t the first time an animal protection group has criticized Palin’s show. The Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund started a petition, which now has over 534,000 signatures, asking Discovery to pull the series for Palin’s support of aerial wolf hunting.

We don’t, however, think Discovery will nix the popular program. The premiere of Sarah Palin’s Alaska pulled in a record 5 million viewers — the channel’s biggest launch in history.

Check out the clip of Sarah’s alleged bear tampering, and tell us what you think? Rule breaker or no big deal?
