weekly Animal Petitions Corner

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Speak Up for Captive Tigers

There are currently an estimated 5,00-10,000 captive tigers being kept in the U.S. Many of these are considered “generic,” they’re not purebred and not protected with endangered species status. Many of these are kept as pets, and go unaccounted for due to a ruling by the USFWS that exempts people from having to report owning them or requiring them to have a permit to keep them.

The USFWS just created a proposal that would get rid of the generic tiger exemption and require anyone with a tiger to report them, allowing for regulation and oversight of captive tigers and the potential for new laws protecting these big cats.

Submit a comment to the USFWS supporting their proposal for the exemption of “generic” tigers.


2. Help Free Sarah from the Circus

Sarah, a 55-year-old elephant, collapsed as she was being loaded into boxcar in the beginning of August. According to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, she’s just fine. However, according to USDA reports she’s had a chronic infection that’s been left untreated, while Sarah’s been forced to continue to perform.

Sign the petition asking the USDA and Congress to remove Sarah from the circus and let her live out her days in peace.


3. End the Use of Monkeys in the Military’s Chemical Warfare Training

The U.S. Army has 32 monkeys held at Aberdeen Proving Ground and is expecting to receive 20 vervet monkeys that they will be using in chemical casualty management courses.

Please send a letter to your representatives asking them to end this cruel practice and switch to non-animal training methods.
