ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Help Save Wolverines from Extinction

Today there are only an estimated 250-300 wolverines left in existence in the contiguous states, yet they remain vulnerable to hunting and are now facing additional threats due to climate change affecting their snowy habitats. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Trust is proposing increased protection for wolverines, which includes listing them under the Endangered Species Act. 

Please sign the petition asking the Obama administration to support this move. 


2. Get Meaningful Sentence for Dog Shootings

Last fall, John Lake commented to his 13-year-old son about shooting dogs they had seen chasing deer, mistakenly believing it was perfectly legal. On a subsequent trip in November, his son shot and killed three dogs, whose bodies were later discovered by a neighbor that knew them. The state's attorney has charged Lake with one felony count of risk of injury to child, one misdemeanor count of accessory to cruelty to animals, one misdemeanor count of accessory to illegal discharge of firearm and one violation of illegal gun/bow hunting by minor. 

Please sign the petition urging the state's attorney to impose a meaningful sentence if he is convicted. 


3. Help Make Poaching a Priority 

Since 2004, 11,100 elephants have lost their lives to poaching in Gabon's Minkebe Park, which was once considered home to Africa's largest forest elephant population, while other studies estimate that as many as 30,000 elephants died last year alone. Sadly, a number of other species are also being killed for their body parts to feed the growing demand. 

Please send a letter asking Secretary Kerry to ensure that wildlife trafficking remains a top priority for the State Department.
