weekly Animal Petitions Corner

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Stop the University of Washington’s Cruel Ferret Lab

Pediatrics residents at UW learn about endotracheal intubation by repeatedly forcing tubes down the throats of live ferrets, which is painful and can cause tracheal bruising and bleeding

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, under the premise that the university is violating the AWA by using live animals when alternatives are available.

Sign the petition asking the dean of UW’s School of Medicine to replace live animals with simulators.


2. Save Badgers from Slaughter

Even though the badger is a protected species in the UK and Europe, England is considering large-scale badger culls as a way to stop the spread of bovine tuberculosis to cattle. In addition to the cruelty involved, scientists have proven that these culls do nothing to prevent the spread of the disease and in some cases can actually increase it.

Sign the petition asking Minister David Cameron to put science before greed and stop the cull.


3. Save Prairie Dogs in South Dakota from Poisoning

Prairie dogs are considered a keystone species that are vital to the prairie ecosystem.

South Dakota plans on poisoning prairie dogs, despite the risks of losing this species and of secondary poisoning of predators who scavenge as well.

Sign the petition asking South Dakota Department of Agriculture to relocate them instead.
